LETTERS OF SUPPORT FOR LIGHTING ORDINANCE
In May of 2021, the Point Reyes Station Village Association submitted a suggested draft lighting ordinance to Marin County. The ordinance would be Marin’s first county lighting ordinance, covering unincorporated West Marin.
- Shield lights
- Restrict illumination levels
- Encourage yellow lighting, not blue
- Establish lighting zones (including Dark Sky Zones)
- Limit outdoor lighting
- Limit sports arena lighting
- Restrict illuminated signs
- Provide for enforcement
- Allow 10 years to fully comply
We urge you to contact each of the five county supervisors to express your support of a light-pollution ordinance. Please include your name and address and your reasons for supporting the ordinance. If you’re inspired, please add a short description of why you believe in preserving the night skyscape.
