This may sound like a odd question, but do the subdivisions where the home sare in Cary, Wake Forest and anywhere in the Raleigh Metro area neighborhoods have streetlights? Or Lamp posts? I dont mean the lamps on peoples property, but regular street lights?

I ask this because I have a job possibility in Pa and their the new homes & even old have no lamp posts in the subdivisions. some tell me thats due to the low taxes, yet the are lower here in Nevada and we have plenty of street lights.

Thank you -- Tony

I am trying to think of a subdivision (what everyone would refer to as a subdivision) that doesn't have street lights. I believe it is more a norm than not. Our neighborhood is new (only 2 years old) and we don't have what we would consider enough lighting, so we are working with the developer and wake electric company to install more lights before the developer turns the development over to the homeowner's.

If it's in the City Limits of whatever city/town you're at (Raleigh, Durham, ChapelHill, etc), then yeah, it's going to have streetlights--owned and maintained by the city itself.

If it's outside of city limits, then some subdivisions (not all) will run their own lights. Usually covered by homeowner association fees or something like that.

Default Subdivisons & Streetlights? Lamp posts? In Raleigh Metro

interesting, Where i grew up ( Long Island NY ) we had street lights that is. Here in Vegas we have them. But i wonder why not in Lancaster or York Pa, well in most areas of Lancaster & York that is.

Thats good to hear that Raleigh has them. Dark streets are not a good thing.

Thanks - Tony
