Street Lighting

City of Sandy Springs street lights are installed exclusively to illuminate public streets, roads and sidewalks with the goal of keeping motorists and pedestrians safe.

Neighborhood Lighting Cost Sharing Program

For citizen/neighborhood initiated street light requests that desire City of Sandy Springs standard decorative street lights, the City offers a cost sharing program as determined by the City’s street light standards (See Sections I-II of the Street Light Policy).  Applicants will be able to submit requests to participate in the cost sharing program for new residential street lights only during the open enrollment period which ends March 15th of every year. Requests shall be prioritized by the total cost projected for the City to pay after the cost is shared with the applicant. Requests that are quoted at a lower cost relative to other requests will be prioritized until funds for the fiscal year are expended. Citizens/Neighborhoods will be awarded funds as long as the allotted funds are available. Once the funds have been expended for that budget cycle, all unfunded requests will be considered during the next open enrollment period for the program.
