This document is a modified version of the very basic ordinance adopted by the city of Fayetteville and also Harrison.  The principle substantive modifications over the original are intended to strengthen the light trespass provisions while rendering them less ambiguous, and to introduce color considerations critical to addressing the biological impacts of artificial light at night. While here drafted for the city of Little Rock, it can be adapted to most any community as it avoids the complex elements that a more comprehensive ordinance such as the IES/IDA model ordinances entail.  The point here is to formulate an ordinance that is simple to understand and administer while moving a community toward a responsible lighting environment.
