§ 123-26 - Lighting.

Lighting of sites shall be designed to prevent off-site disturbance, nuisance or hazard. All outdoor light sources shall be designed, directed and/or shielded such that the nighttime lighting is primarily contained on the site, shielding to the extent necessary abutting properties and roads. No light source shall be permitted if that light causes glare or other safety problems on an adjacent street.

  1. Outdoor lighting fixtures shall not be mounted higher than twenty-five (25) feet;
  2. Individual light fixtures (or the sum for clusters of fixtures supported on a single pole) shall not exceed 40,000 lumens. As an incentive to promote the use of energy efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) fixtures, if site lighting is comprised entirely of energy efficient LED fixtures the maximum illuminance of individual light fixtures (or the sum for clusters of fixtures supported on a single pole) may be increased by twenty-five percent (25%) and shall not exceed 50,000 lumens;
  3. The total initial site lumens of all site lighting systems shall not exceed four (4) lumens per square foot of disturbed area. As an incentive to promote the use of energy efficient LED fixtures, if site lighting is comprised entirely of energy efficient LED fixtures the total initial site lumens of all site lighting systems may be increased by ten percent (10%) and shall not exceed 4.4 lumens per square foot of disturbed area;
  4. Site lighting shall not trespass beyond property lines; luminance along property lines shall be measured within six (6) feet of finish grade along the property line;
  5. All lighting fixtures shall be listed as approved by the International Dark Sky Association (IDA), fully shielded and installed per manufacturer’s specifications;
  6. The Board may reduce the permitted heights to reduce or eliminate undue adverse impacts.
