How can we reach our 2020 Greenest City targets?

Reduce light pollution

Relatively easy to correct and largely the result of bad design, light pollution is a common problem throughout the city. Make sure that lights are designed to focus light downwards and not allowed up into the night sky where it disrupts the diurnal patterns of many species (including people).

        This should be implemented for all public and private organizations. Currently street lamps inappropriately direct light in second story windows. This can be easily changed without additional cost by the thoughtful use lamp angles and light shields when street lights are installed.
