The village board, the village code enforcement officer and the attorney for the village have devoted much time to drafting a lighting law. We have reviewed laws in a number of municipalities, including the Town of Warwick; the City of Black Diamond, WA; and the Town of Charlestown, RI; and have discussed the issue with many people, including village residents. This is a complex issue and we appreciate your patience. Linked here [pdf] is the revised draft lighting law. The board will hold a public hearing on the proposed law at 7 p.m., Monday, January 28, 2019, at Village Hall. [view entire resolution] We welcome your comments.
