Stars not bright enough in Stow

STOW

Town officials are mulling some amendments to the town’s light pollution bylaw, an ordinance dating back to the 1970's aimed at curbing the town’s output of artificial light, said Karen Kelleher, planning coordinator.

The amendments, expected to be up for a vote next spring, are mainly technical in nature and are geared at tightening up the existing bylaw, said Kelleher. One of the amendment asks for more downward-facing street lights in town, she said.
