Holiday & Decorative Lighting


Although temporary electrical power for construction or emergencies is permitted during the period of construction or emergency, the use of decorative or holiday lighting on the exterior of a structure or dwelling is limited to a period of not more than 80 days between November 1 and January 19.

This is not intended to restrict observance of holidays, but rather to be in compliance with California Electrical Code requirements for temporary wiring. In addition, this helps to not only reduce the potential for electrical and fire hazards, but to enhance the appearance of Chino’s neighborhoods.
