A public hearing has been set for the contentious lighting ordinance that aims to make Page a more dark sky-friendly city.
Page residents will be able to appeal to the Page City Council at 5:30 p.m., Aug. 30 at City Hall regarding the ordinance.
The public hearing date was set at last week’s city council meeting after several local citizens requested it.
By Arizona law, a city council must schedule a public hearing for an ordinance submitted by a Planning and Zoning Commission before adoption if a member of the public body requests it.
Among other restrictions, the proposed ordinance would dictate all Page businesses extinguish their outdoor lighting by 10 p.m., as well as require all outdoor light bulbs to be a specific brightness and temperature.
For a more detailed breakdown of what the ordinance is proposing, check out the front-page story in the July 26 issue of the Lake Powell Chronicle.
