Municipal Bylaws

To help municipalities develop their own Light Pollution Abatement Bylaws, we list in the MS-Excel file below, the existing documents we know of, at this time. The table also contains Lighting Bylaws from a few Canadian Municiplaities and a RASC Sample Bylaw that includes the use of LED luminaires.

In addition, it contains files of the RASC Position Statement on the MLO that was approved by our National Council and submitted to the IDA. The RASC has reviewed and commented on the first and second drafts of the Model Lighting Ordinance written by the International Dark-sky Association (IDA) and the Illumination Engineering Society of North America (IESNA). In our opinion it conflicts with the Light Pollution Abatement Program of the RASC on several levels.
