Protect night sky

Dear Editor:

Issues within Archuleta County, outdoor lighting for one. As a nation we are trying to protect our night sky. Here in Archuleta County a lot of people thought starting 2005 downward lighting policy was instituted for the future. As people in control come and go changes occurred. Flood lights are now the downward and others need be frosted or opaque. Many people building in 2005 plus, experienced inspection requiring downward.

Today a quote from building and planning, “Inspectors judgment at the time” Is this an open ended policy.

Wake up people save electricity, protect our night sky.
