Ballot question:

Should the City of Bandon Municipal Code be amended to include outdoor lighting regulations?[2]

Summary of question:

This is a referendum of Ordinance No. 1594 of the Mayor and City Council of the City of Bandon amending the Bandon Municipal Code to include outdoor lighting regulations. Ordinance No. 1594 regulates the use of outdoor lighting in all zones and requires that all exterior lighting installe dafter the effective date of the ordinance be full cut -off fixtures with some exceptions. Full cut-off fixtures are defined as fixtures, as installed, that are designed or shielded in such a manner that all light rays emitted by the fixtures, either directly from the lamps or indirectly form the fixture, are projected below a horizontal plane running through the lowest point on the fixture where light is emitted. Full cut-off fixtures include recessed lighting. Aerial lasers, searchlights and temporary or permanent lighting that is installed inside of a building but intended to illuminate outside is prohibited from being used or installed except as allowed by a special use permit. Violations of the ordinance are remedied by an abatement process.[1][2]
