Key Talking Points
Please write City Council today and tell them:
- You are concerned about the proliferation of light pollution in our community and the negative impacts it has on human health, wildlife health, energy conservation and our ability to see the night sky.
- You support adoption of the Dark Skies Report, appreciate the work that has gone into this effort and support its adoption.
- Most importantly, please ask Council to follow through on the report’s recommendations and allocate funds within 1-2 years to develop code language to reduce unnecessary, wasteful and unhealthy light pollution. The work done to date will only be meaningful if Council follows through and implements the recommendations.
