LED Streetlights Coming Soon to The Landings

The Landings has more than 240 streetlights that help illuminate the community during the early morning and nighttime hours. It may come as a surprise to some that the lights are owned and maintained by Georgia Power. Although The Landings Association does assist in reporting streetlight outages, Georgia Power is responsible for all of the maintenance, repair, and upgrades to the lights. The costs associated with the streetlights are funded through the Association’s operational budget.

Over the last several years, the Public Works Department has continued to research alternative lighting options as we move towards becoming a more sustainable and energy-efficient community. During recent communications and meetings with Georgia Power, the Public Works Department was able to successfully negotiate a zero percent increase with Georgia Power to switch our current, outdated cobra heads (high-pressure sodium light fixtures) with new LED lighting.

Georgia Power installed two test lights with this new technology at the intersections of Landings Way South and Activity Drive and Westcross Road and Franklin Creek Road South.

Staff and resident committees are in the process of evaluating the test lights to determine if the color/type of LED lighting is a good fit for the community.

We encourage you to stop by the intersections to view the lights for yourself and provide any feedback to pwmanagers@landings.org.

Thank you in advance for your help and support as we continue to make energy-efficient improvements and upgrades throughout the community.
