A.   Subdivision Street Lighting: In new subdivisions, adequate street lighting shall be provided at all intersections and at intermediate intervals not exceeding three hundred fifty feet (350'). The developer shall be responsible for furnishing and installing all street lighting facilities, including, but not limited to, poles, underground or overhead cables, trenching and backfilling for a completely workable system 1 . As an alternate to the developer furnishing and installing the street lighting facilities, the developer shall cause the utility company providing such service to furnish and install said facilities with the developer reimbursing said company for this work. No approval of a final plat of subdivision will be made until the foregoing improvements as required by the plan commission are made or until the plan commission has been provided proper guarantee of performance. (Ord. 98.80, 4-5-1999)
   B.   Alternative Street Lighting: Upon the approval of the city manager or designee, light poles other than the treated wood poles and appurtenances typically used in the city may be installed at the developer's expense. Such fixtures shall provide the minimum illumination specified by the city engineer at all intersections and at intermediate intervals. Further, such poles and appurtenances shall conform to the alternative models specified by Commonwealth Edison or any other electric utility company providing such service. If the operation, maintenance, and replacement costs of such streetlights create an expense in excess of the average cost of the city's standard lighting, the city council shall establish an operational special service area to finance any extraordinary maintenance costs. Prior to the approval of any alternate system of lighting, a joint developer/city agreement shall be approved by the city council. (Ord. 98.80, 4-5-1999; amd. Ord. 2002.95, 4-21-2003)
