Dark Skies Advisory Committee


The purpose of the Southampton Town Dark Skies Advisory Committee is to curtail light pollution and to encourage compliance with the town's outdoor lighting regulations by means of educational and legislative efforts in order to prevent dangerous glare, save energy and money, limit damage to the environment and to human health, and preserve our view of the star-filled night sky.
