City Launches LED Lighting Pilot Program

DME Seeks Public Feedback on New Street Light Levels

The City of Denton, through Denton Municipal Electric (DME), has launched an LED lighting pilot program to test different options for LED lights in streetlamps. During the pilot program, various strengths of light will be placed on three streets: Stuart Road (from Sherman to Juno), Bell Avenue (from Hickory to University), and Sherman Drive (from Bell to Hercules). The lighting pilot will end on Jan. 15, 2019.

The goal of the pilot program is to test the level of lumens (watt equivalents) that will create a
desirable amount of light for a given area as the City works to convert all existing streetlamps to
efficient LED technology. Since LED lights can produce various levels of light output, bulbs
with three different light levels will be placed along roadways during the testing period.

Each street in the pilot will be divided into three segments, with different lighting levels placed
in each street segment. Signage will note the beginning and end of each segment, and residents
will be able to report back which segment had the best or most desirable quality of light.

Residents are encouraged to provide feedback during the pilot program by going to
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/dmelight and taking a brief survey. For additional questions,
contact Jerry Fielder at Jerry.Fielder@cityofdenton.com or (940) 349-7173.
