Applications are available to Peoria homeowners and property owners who want a dusk-to-dawn alley light installed on their house or garage. The City has earmarked money for the purchase and installation of 100 lights. There is no fee for citizens who apply for the installation of a light. The only requirements for installation are that an applicant’s house or property is served by an alley, and the applicant must not have participated in previous alley lighting programs. The applicant is also responsible for the care and maintenance of the light after it is installed. The alley light features a 42-watt florescent bulb encased in a metal wall unit with a heavy duty light cover. The light will be hardwired to an existing electrical system from a house or a garage.
Applications are available at the City’s website: www.ci.peoria.il.us/planningforms. Applications are also available at the Planning & Growth Management Department, Twin Towers Building, 456 Fulton Street, Suite 402. For information call Steve Fairbanks at 494-8603.
