By becoming a "dark sky" community like Ketchum, Idaho, you will fast become a very inviting place for people who are interested in astronomy and appreciate a night sky filled with stars. By adopting a stringent outdoor lighting code and making some changes to your existing outdoor lighting, you will save money and attract highly educated and talented people to your community. Residents of your town will have a great view of the night sky and enjoy a natural, peaceful nighttime environment--something that no large city or town in a metropolitan area can provide. This gives you a decided advantage in attracting new businesses and residents. For more information, contact David Oesper.
