         (a)   All such lighting fixtures shall be equipped with a glare control package (e.g., directional LED lighting, louvers, shields or similar devices), and any fixtures shall be aimed so that their beams are directed within the playing or performance area.
         (b)   Light levels at adjacent property lines shall not exceed ambient light levels by 0.5 foot candles in any circumstance.
         (c)   Light measurement technique: Light level measurements shall be made at the property line of the property upon which light to be measured is being generated. Measurements will first be taken with the light off and then with the light on to establish a baseline for ambient light conditions. If measurement on private property is not possible or practical, light level measurements may be made at the boundary of the public street right-of-way that adjoins the property of the complainant or at any other location on the property of the complainant. Measurements shall be made at finished grade (ground level), with the light registering portion of the meter held parallel to the ground pointing up. The meter shall have cosine and color correction and have an accuracy tolerance of no greater than plus or minus five percent. Measurements shall be taken with a light meter that has been calibrated within two years. Light levels are specified, calculated and measured in foot candles.
         (d)   In the event a dispute between the City and the property owner or lessee over the validity of any light measurements taken by the City arises, then at the expense of the party disputing the claim, an independent engineer may be hired to conduct new measurements. The engineer shall be licensed by the state and shall take all measurements while accompanied by a representative of the city. Both parties shall certify the readings on the independent engineer's light meter and measurements shall be taken in the same way as described above in section 9-4-103 (II)(7)(d).
