City Accepting Applications for 2019 Lamppost Lighting Program
July 11, 2019
The City of South Bend Department of Public Works is now accepting applications for the 2019 Lamppost Lighting Program, which assists homeowners with lighting enhancements in their neighborhoods. The program offers easy self-install, solar-powered lampposts for residential front yards.
The cost-share program is available to homeowners in the city. For 2019, the City has selected two target areas based on income, number of vacant lots and need for lighting in the neighborhood. Homeowners who live within the target areas will pay a lower share of the total cost:
Within target areas, homeowners pay 10% of total lamppost cost: $50.00
Outside target areas, homeowners pay 50% of total lamppost cost: $250.00
Since 2015, the Division of Engineering has conducted a residential Lamppost Lighting Program as a part of its Light Up South Bend initiative. The purpose of Light Up South Bend is to improve residential neighborhood safety through the installation of additional street lighting, including both street lights and residential lampposts.
The last day to apply for the Lamppost Lighting Program is Friday, August 9. More information about the program and target areas can be found in the brochure or at southbendin.gov/lamppost.
