2018 Lamppost Lighting Program
The City of South Bend’s Lamppost Lighting Program assists homeowners with lighting enhancements in their neighborhoods through front yard lamppost installations.
The 2018 Lamppost Lighting Program is piloting solar-powered lampposts for residential lighting. The solar lampposts are easy self-install posts that must be mounted in a level area within approximately five feet of the edge of sidewalk, but cannot be installed in the tree lawn. Assistance with installation is available upon request.
There is a limit of one lamppost per household and the homeowner is responsible for any maintenance of the lamppost. The City’s Division of Engineering will be monitoring the lampposts to measure the success of the pilot program.
