Decorative Streetlights for Sale in Old Orange Historic District

Decorative Streetlights for Sale in Old Orange Historic District

The City of Orange Planning and Community Development Department is now taking orders for the purchase of decorative streetlights in the Old Orange Historic District or the Dupont Homes/Bennett Addition historic district. Only homeowners and businesses located in either of these historic districts are eligible to purchase the decorative streetlights through the City of Orange. The streetlights are the same size and style as the existing decorative streetlights in the historic districts.

Interested persons may pick up a Decorative Streetlight Purchase Agreement from the Planning and Community Development Department at 303 N. 8th Street. When submitting the application, a deposit of $1,527 dollars must be made at the time the agreement is submitted to the department. The department will mark each agreement with the date and time that the agreement and deposit were submitted. If there are more requests for streetlights than the City has budgeted, then the orders will be submitted to the manufacturer on a “first come, first served” basis. If the actual purchase price of the streetlight is different from the deposit, then the City and the applicant will settle the difference before the streetlight is installed.

The City will be responsible for the installation of the streetlight(s) and they will be placed at the curb to maintain consistency in the historic districts. The applicant will be responsible for the costs to connect the electricity to the streetlight(s) after installation and responsible for any electric bills after the streetlight is connected.

The City anticipates placing orders for streetlights on or about March 15, 2020. For more information, please contact the Planning and Community Development Department at 409-883-1034.
