“Bring Back The Milky Way” Ordinance Introduced to Fredericksburg, Texas

January 20, 2014

Tonight at 7:00 PM I will be presenting to the Fredericksburg (Texas) City Council an ordinance to limit outdoor lighting. I believe this is the next big step in improving the quality of life in this unique place.OLO PresentationPDF

This may be as controversial as the sign ordinance. Twenty five years later, the proof is in the pudding; no one says that our main street looks like “The Las Vegas Strip.” (This is frequently heard about another hill country city).

    Robert, this is so interesting–I knew a little about the light pollution issue, but now I understand the choices. Having traveled out west some–Yellowstone, Zion, etc.– I encountered this issue in the parks. Living in New York, there are few dark areas to stargaze (plus it’s too damn cold!.) 🙂
    Thanks for sharing this.
