Community Enhancement’s Streetlight Program was developed to fund streetlight improvements as part of the department’s community cleanup activities. This program will refer frequently to Chesterfield County’s existing street light policy and has similar criteria and processes. To be considered for this program, the neighborhood must be part of a community cleanup event sponsored by Community Enhancement. For questions or to apply, contact 804-748-1229.
Matoaca Manor was the first to apply for a street light under the new program. After meeting all the requirements, Matoaca Manor will receive the dusk to dawn pole light in June 2019.
Community Enhancement’s program also offers dusk to dawn LED solar lights to brighten up specific areas of the county such as common areas, cul-de-sacs and pedestrian walkways. Community Enhancement placed a prototype LED solar light at the Falling Creek Ironworks Park on Jefferson Davis Highway. The results were welcomed by Parks and Recreation staff and the citizens in that area.
