How did the Town determine streetlight wattages?

A system of street classification (arterial, connector, and residential) was developed to determine appropriate light levels for each street. The criteria are in accordance with guidelines used by the Federal Highway Administration, MassDOT, and the Illuminating Engineering Society. However, as the scope of this project does not include moving light poles, the Town was limited to using existing pole locations throughout the Town.
