Public Works is responsible for the management of street lighting in some of the electoral areas. Currently the Regional District is responsible for Husula Highlands, Naramata, Olalla, Faulder, Keremeos, Schneider Subdivision, West Bench and Heritage Hills.
Establishing a Local Service Area for Street Lighting
In existing subdivisions, the owners of property within the subdivision may petition the Regional District to provide streetlights in their area. To be approved, the petition must receive support of at least 2/3 of the owners and the total value of the assenting owner's land must represent more than 50% of the total land value in the subdivision. If approved the owners will pay for installation, operating, and maintaining the streetlights on their taxes or through an annual utility bill.
Developers should check with the Regional District Planning Services for subdivision requirements before building.
If you notice any burnt out bulbs or have any other maintenance requests, please contact Public Works at 250-490-4135 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
