The Borough maintains all street lights within the Borough of New Hope, except those street lights located in private developments, such as Village II and Riverwoods. The street lights in private developments are owned and maintained by a homeowners’ association. Another exception concerns underground wiring, which is maintained by PECO Energy.
Reporting Street Light Outages
Please refer all street light outages, except those in Riverwoods and Village II, to Borough Hall at 215-862-3347. The Borough street light maintenance contractor will determine the nature of the problem and either make the necessary repairs or refer the problem to PECO Energy, if the outage is caused by an underground wiring problem. When reporting street light outages, please refer to the pole number or provide the street address closest to the inoperable street light.
