The Importance of Porch Lights

In an effort to promote community safety, we ask that residents turn on their porch and/or carriage lights in the evenings. Studies show that leaving your porch light on at night costs less than $1 a month (using LED bulbs). This is a small price to pay to increase the safety of the community!

Some benefits of keeping on your outside lights include:

  • Creates a welcoming appearance to your home.
  • Increases the perception of safety to residents and visitors.
  • Reduces the opportunity for criminal activity.
  • Visible house numbers are important for visitors, delivery drivers, and emergency personnel.
  • Enhances the appearance of your neighborhood at night by adding ambient lighting.
