CPOA outdoor lighting committee to present seminar

CPOA outdoor lighting committee to present seminar

Brighter does not mean safer or better.

According to Chautauqua Property Owners Association outdoor lighting committee chair Bill Neches, the ability to walk or drive safely around the Chautauqua Institution grounds at night is compromised by bright lights shining in one’s eyes.

The CPOA — using the research and recommendations of the Dark Sky Association — advocates lights which shine downward, “on the road or sidewalk, where you need light the most — not in your eyes, bedroom windows or up into the sky where it is dangerous, annoying or wasteful,” Neches said in an email.
