The purpose of this chapter is to minimize light pollution to allow citizens of the County to view and enjoy the night environment, allow communities within the unincorporated areas of the County to become recognized by the International Dark-Sky Association as International Dark-Sky Communities, and protect the Palomar and Mount Laguna observatories from the detrimental effect that light pollution has on astronomical research. This chapter establishes three geographic lighting zones, each with different light pollution protection standards.
