(a) Conflicts. In the event the provisions in this chapter conflict with federal or state law, this section shall be applied in a manner intended to carry out all provisions of law to the maximum extent feasible. When there is an irreconcilable conflict between the provisions of this chapter and the requirements of federal or state law, the provisions of federal or state law shall prevail over the provisions contained in this chapter only to the extent necessary to avoid a violation of those laws.
(b) Minimum Lighting Standards. This chapter provides for minimum outdoor lighting standards. In order to further minimize light pollution and light trespass, nothing in this chapter shall prohibit the County from imposing standards that are more restrictive as a condition of approval for a discretionary land use. Nor shall this chapter prohibit a declaration of covenants, conditions and restrictions for private enforcement from further restricting lighting so long as it meets the minimum standards detailed in this chapter.
