Adopt Dark Sky Lighting Ordinances in Layton, Utah
This petition had 55 supporters
It all began when the City installed a bright blue LED street light 40 feet from my bedroom window. Exhausting all requests to mitigate the nuisance with the City, I was left with only a suggestion to get new blinds or put a blanket in my window.
Through further research, I've learned that bright lights impact wildlife populations by disrupting natural circadian rhythm related to sleeping and eating habits. Lights in the blue spectrum also suppress melatonin, which is linked to obesity, type II diabetes, heart disease, and even some cancers.
After speaking to several neighbors, I found there was a large opposition to these bright LED lights. Several also desired Dark Sky compliant lights instead of these blue area lights being installed currently.
