Request a New Streetlight

Residents can request a streetlight by e-mail or phone. Please provide the following information when you contact us:

  • Your name and contact information
  • The address where you would like a streelight installed

All requests will be reviewed and prioritized. The current plan is to install 60 to 70 new streetlights per year. Ranking the requests allows for locations with the highest need and greatest benefit to be installed first.

Streetlights help prevent crime and improve safety for motorists, bicycle riders, and pedestrians. Because everyone in Salem benefits from streetlights, all residents pay a monthly streetlight fee with their utility bills.
