Applications closed for Peoria Alley Light Program
Applications are no longer being accepted this year for the Peoria Alley Light Program after the city Community Development Department said all available alley lights for 2016 have been allocated.
The Alley Light Program provides alley lights to homeowners whose homes or properties are served by an alley. The program is limited to 40 lights per year. The city installs the alley lights and then the homeowner undertakes maintenance of the lights, such as replacing the bulbs when needed.
Each dusk-to-dawn alley light consists of a metal wall unit with a heavy-duty light cover. The fixture features an energy-saving 20-watt florescent bulb. The fixtures are installed on the wall of a house or garage and utilize the existing electrical system.
To qualify for the program, the property must be owner-occupied. The owner should not owe any fines or fees to the city, and the applicant cannot have participated in the alley lighting programs previously.
Homeowners who did not receive an alley light this year should contact the Community Development Department in spring for details on the 2017 Alley Light Program.
