    Fairfax does the same thing. It makes it seriously hard to justify the effort of getting a pike/ped plan put together in the first place, since it ends up not actually meaning anything at all.

    Streetlights aren't actually very cheap--something like $5-10k lifetime cost--and you amortize the cost of running the wires by having a crew run a whole bunch of them in a straight line, usually...
