The City of Peoria is hoping a new initiative will make alleys a little less frightening.
The Peoria Alley Light Program is for homeowners who want a free, 20-watt light to install on their house or garage -- to brighten up a dark alleyway.
Those interested in getting a free light are required to submit an application to City Hall. Eligibility information and application is available here. The City says the 40 lights are available for eligible applicants.
