Streetlighting Districts


The Resource Recovery & Waste Management Division also administers all streetlighting functions in the unincorporated areas of Santa Barbara County.

These districts include the following:

  • Mission Canyon Lighting District (serving the unincorporated area of Mission Canyon);
  • North County Lighting District (serving Casmailia, Los Alamos, Orcutt, unincorporated Lompoc, and unincorporated Santa Maria);
  • County Service Area 3 (serving unincorporated Goleta and unincorporated Santa Barbara);
  • County Service Area 31 (serving Isla Vista); and
  • County Service Area 11 (serving Summerland and unincorporated Carpinteria).
