One Lonely Lightpole Without a Light

Well, it looks like my lonely lightpole will continue to be light-less. You'll recall that I've been on somewhat of a mission to get a streetlamp installed in its rightful place on the corner of N7th St and Sassafrass St.  Met-Ed, it seems, is unable to figure out how to put a streetlamp up on this pole. Quote from Dave Hopkins, Easton Director of Public Works:
The pole at the corner has a large number of existing facilities and due to safety and other concerns a new light will not fit.
 Not being a utility pole engineer I'm not particularly qualified to argue, but seriously, I've seen WAY more crowded poles around than this one. Like this one:
How would you like to see THAT outside your bedroom window?
