Nice ornate street lights, what's the deal?

I'm sure to get blasted for this but I really am just curious. I was near Ruby Hills today but not in Ruby Hills I believe. Whatever the new home tract name is just West of Ruby Hills and East on Vintage Hills. Well anyway I noticed their new lamp posts. They are very nice (and new obviously). I think they look great, and possibly expensive, but my question is, do property taxes get portioned out relative to neighborhoods tax revenue? Do they get these ornate lights because the developer pays for them? Basically why do they get better street lights then the rest of Pleasanton? I'm not complaining about my streets lights, they work well and I wouldn't want the city wasting money replacing them. I just wanted to know if it was my tax dollars, their tax dollars, the developers or what. If you know tell me.
