The City of Sugar Land currently maintains about 8200 street lights, which is conducted through an agreement with Center Point Energy. Therefore, the city only accepts Center Point approved street light fixtures. Examples of current street lights include the 100-watt cobrahead lights in most neighborhoods, the 250-watt Houstonian acorn lights in the Telfair area, and the 150-watt lamppost lights along the City’s signature routes.
Street Light Replacement on Signature Routes
The city initiated a program to replace the "cobra-head" street lights with decorative post-top lights on poles shorter than tree canopy. At this time, lights along sections of Lexington Boulevard and Williams Trace have been converted to decorative street lights. The city will continue to analyze the signature routes and rank each corridor’s need for street light replacement.
Private HOA Street Light Conversion
The City of Sugar Land also provides a program for privately-maintained community and homeowner’s associations (HOA) concerning their street light maintenance.
These private associations have an opportunity to replace their street lights with a system managed through the city. The private associations will need to fund the streetlight removals and installations. However, the City will manage the operation and maintenance costs for the new streetlights.
Street Light Repairs
