Why are there street lights only on some corners in my
neighborhood in the Plumas Lake Specific Plan Area?
the Plumas Lake Specific Plan was being planned, property
owners near in the proposed development area were
concerned about losing their rural setting and did not
want a lot of street lights illuminating the area.
So when the Plan was adopted by the County, street lights
were required to be placed only at intersections and at
decision locations. When the first subdivisions were
being constructed in the Plumas Lake area the the
developer interpreted the Specific Plan to read that
street lights were to be placed only at intersections.
After the first few maps and plans were approved, our
department interpreted the meaning of decision locations
to include the backs of cul-de-sacs and at knuckles.
Unfortunately the developers were not willing to install
additional street lights in the areas already
Homes has more street lights because they have chosen to
install street lighting beyond what is required. The
home owners in this area will be paying a higher yearly
assessment for the enhanced street lighting.
way for the County to require more lighting is to amend the
Plumas Lake Specific Plan and set criteria for street
lights. At this time there are no plans to amend the
Plumas Lake Specific Plan. But we do encourage
developers to install additional street lights beyond what
is required by the Specific Plan.
your neighbors can contact PG&E and have them install a
street light. You would be responsible for the
installation costs and possibly the monthly electrical
costs. There has been no decision made on whether the
electrical costs for a street light installed by property
owners could be funded through the County Service Area.
