Section 515.03 | Contents and effect of petition - lighting district limitations.


A petition for the lighting of streets and public ways under section 515.02 of the Revised Code shall specify the metes and bounds of the district in which such lights are to be erected. The signing of such petition by a property owner is a waiver by him of all claims for compensation and damages for lands necessarily appropriated for the purpose of supporting and maintaining such lights.

A lighting district shall neither include lands more than six hundred sixty feet from the streets and public ways to be lighted, nor include any lands not abutting on those streets and public ways, except that any lot whose only access is by way of an easement through land abutting such a street or public way may be included in a lighting district to the extent the land is no more than six hundred sixty feet from that street or public way.
