Lighting City Hall

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​City Hall Lighting.JPG​​​​​​The lighting of City Hall is used to help amplify significant local events, activities and causes.

Lighting requests are approved based on predetermined criteria and guidelines. The information provided with the submission form will be used to evaluate requests and ensure they meet the requirements for a City Hall lighting. All applicants will be contacted to confirm the status of their request.

Please note that the Mayor of Lethbridge, by resolution of City Council, does not issue proclamations to mark events, issues or occasions. Instead, we encourage community members to request a City Hall Lighting.
