“Dear PoPville,

We just moved into a new building in Shaw and the street lights BLARE into the windows all night long casting bright yellow light into the condo. Even with shades it’s nearly impossible to sleep. Are you aware of any procedure or contact to ask the City to dim/mask/reposition street lights?”

When we previously spoke about this a couple years ago, a commenter advised:

“Indeed, I know the DC streetlight guy, DDOT participates in our regional street light working group. He says, just get it on 311 (or online), make sure they have the pole number, and they’d be happy to take care of it.”
