Lighting

Nice Pedestrian LightingLighting in the public right-of-way, typically occurs in the form of taller street lights, shorter lights directly above pedestrian walkways, lighting that accentuates features on a building faade, in-pavement/ground/up lighting, catenary or hanging lights, and illumination that flows outward from the inside of buildings. Lighting promotes perceived personal security for pedestrians walking at night, helps provide visibility for pedestrians to motor vehicles, and can help create a vibrant and attractive evening streetscape. Lighting also helps illuminate potential hazards.
