Lehigh Acres Street Lighting District
Street lighting is an important resource for our community with such a large land area. It is important for safety. Lee County Government continues to add over 3,000 street lights that will include dead end streets. Homeowners can also request to have lighting placed near their homes by making an application at www.leegov.com/budget/msbtu. You may also report outages by calling the MSBTU office at 239-533-2308. You can also look at a map that includes the lighting district boundaries at leegis.maps.arcgis.com
