Street and Alley Lighting

streetlightThe City of Davenport provides public roadway lighting for the safety of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. In general, the City tries to maintain a consistent pattern of lighting that will reduce dark areas and provide drivers and pedestrians with safe travel.

The majority of the roadway lights within the city are owned and maintained by MidAmerican Energy. The City has teamed with MidAmerican Energy Company to design roadway lighting in new areas as they are developed. This policy has allowed MidAmerican Energy to install lighting without driveway and landscaping conflicts.

In areas developed before the lighting policy was in place, the City will investigate requests for new public lights. To schedule an audit of the existing conditions to determine if additional roadway lighting is warranted in your area, call 563.326.7923. If warranted and feasible, installation of additional street lighting requires completing a petition form (a link is provided below) signed by the person making the request and all residents near the proposed light. Once the petition is returned, it is
presented to Council for approval.
 
Please be aware that return of a signed Petition for Public Lighting form does not guarantee that additional lighting will be approved. The Public Safety Committee makes the final determination of placement of roadway lighting.
