join/relate streetlight to pole

Wondering if anyone has developed a workflow to join a streetlight layer to a pole layer. 

Workflows I am considering:

use the Near GP tool or Spatial Join to grab the pole number from the closest pole and add it to the Streetlight feature class

Issue: pole clusters


Issue: new subdivisions where streetlight information has been collected but the pole doesn't exist in the pole feature class

The Near Tool is a good choice because it will only select one closest feature. If two poles are the same distance apart it will randomly pick one.

The streetlights with missing poles will have a value of -1 (as long as your search radius is small enough to accomplish that) and you can use that to filter them out.
