City of Pullman Zoning Code Chapter 17.35

Thanks to a Pullman resident for sending us this one.

 

[Available from: http://www.pullman-wa.gov/DrawOnePage.aspx?PageID=46]

 

The code states that lights shall not create glare on adjacent properties and establishes an maximum level of light trespass (0.5 fc). This code does not address the issue of sky glow.
