As part of the city’s effort to become an environmentally responsible, City Council approved the retrofit of existing high pressure sodium and mercury vapor streetlights with more efficient LED streetlights in new large development. LED streetlights make colors look bright and more ‘true’ to the natural color, even when the amount of light is less than the old lights. New developments are required to install LED street lights and will need to follow the standards and specification listed below.
