Dozens of members from A Resource in Serving attended Tuesday's meeting where Commissioners Court approved amendments made to Hidalgo County subdivision rules that addresses street lights, bus stops, 2-inch asphalt pavement thickness, cul-de-sac lengths, filling stations, drainage policies, and relocation of utility facilities in subdivisions across the county.
"Streetlight infrastructure, including but not limited to poles, lamps and transformers shall be required in all subdivisions that are proposing internal streets and shall be provided by subdivider," said Planning Director T.J. Arredondo.
Streetlights shall be installed at all intersections, at cul-de-sacs and at every 250 feet along the length of all internal streets.
The newly adopted Model Subdivision Rules ensures that no future subdivisions will be built without street lights.
The street lighting project includes a deposit of an escrow of not less than $180 made by the subdivider per streetlight in order for service to be provided to the subdivision per calendar year.
Colonia subdivisions include: Rosalinda Rosalez, Soledad Gardens, Isabella, Krishnan, R & E Ranch, Eduardos No 18, and Maravillas Est. 3.
