The City of Boulder is converting streetlights to efficient LEDs to improve safety and visibility for people traveling, reduce carbon emissions, and save money. Community members can share their preferred streetlight color temperature, which is how warm or cool a light appears, for residential areas and major roadways via an online questionnaire, available in English and Spanish, from Sept. 20 to Nov. 1.

In addition to community engagement on streetlight color temperature preferences, the city will evaluate options based on best practices from other cities and technical analyses. The conversion to LEDs will start in 2023 and is anticipated to continue through 2025. Evaluating streetlight locations is not part of this project phase and will take place during a future city process.

Learn more about this project on the city's website.

View sample lights in person

The community can also view the streetlight color temperature options online or in person at two locations. A questionnaire is available via a QR code at each location. The city has installed examples at:
Spruce Pool for residential street options.
— South of the 28th Street and Iris Avenue intersection along 28th Street for roadway options.
