In November, 2014, the Eagle Mountain City Council approved an outdoor lighting ordinance that requires full cut-off light fixtures for all exterior lighting, effectively making them dark-sky compliant. What is Dark-sky compliance? One of the primary reasons that residents move to Eagle Mountain is to “get away” from it all. Recognizing the beauty of the night sky and that we can have an impact on preserving it, the City has taken measures to ensure we can see the night sky for years to come.
The standards our City follows are established by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) which puts a lot of work into pushing for policies that mitigate light pollution. To learn more, see the IDA website below. Additionally, to the right, you can see the Community Standards Guide and Exterior Lighting requirements to help you ensure you are in compliance.
