About 25,000 streetlights help light our community's parks, streets, highways and public places.

The streetlight program is funded through the City of Colorado Springs' annual budget. Developers pay for 100 percent of the capital costs for streetlights in new residential developments and 60 percent of the costs for streetlights on new arterial roadways.

Installation, maintenance and repairs are completed by our crews. An increase of copper theft has made a tremendous impact on the cost of streetlight materials and repairs.

To report a broken or burned out streetlight:

  1. For tracking purposes, the prefered method to submit a request is through the City's GoCoSprings app and report the issue. You can submit the request online or download the app and manage it through your device. Under 'Inquiry Type' select Utilities and make note of the streetlight in the description.
  2. Send us an email with details about the location of the streetlight and the issue.
  3. Call customer service at 448-4800.
