Pageantry lighting site licence

The City will begin a 2-year pilot in April, 2022 requiring a site licence to install pageantry lighting on City-owned Street light poles. A pageantry lighting site licence will allow Business Improvement Areas to access electricity and place seasonal lighting on City Street Lighting infrastructure.

Please note that The City will only grant site licences for Pageantry lighting to Business Improvement Areas (BIA).

The installation of pageantry lighting must be approved by The City of Calgary. Pageantry lighting will generally stay up for a period of two to four months per site licence. Each application will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. For detailed information on installation requirements, sanctioned and restricted streetlights, please view the Pageantry Lighting Guidelines.

How to apply

Applications must be submitted a minimum of three months prior to the desired installation date, and may be submitted up to four months in advance.

The application must include:

  • A five hundred dollars ($500) application fee + a fifteen per cent (15%) administrative fee + GST
  • A three thousand dollars ($3000) deposit for design, engineering, civil and electrical work.
    • A cost estimate will be provided to the applicant for review and approval before proceeding, and any unspent amount will be returned to the applicant.
  • Request on letterhead, indicating that the applicant is a City of Calgary Business Improvement Area (BIA).
  • In the letter, a description of pole locations and pageantry lighting you are requesting permission to install.
    • A maximum of 250 poles may be included in a single site license and must be located within the defined BIA area.
