Outdoor Lighting Manual for Vermont Municipalities

Description: The goal of this study is to help municipalities identify exterior lighting issues; understand basic lighting design concepts; and set sensible, clear, and meaningful lighting standards. The year-long study that preceded this manual involved three Chittenden County communities representing rural, suburban, and urban municipalities in Vermont. Local lighting committees assessed exterior lighting in their towns and prioritized the issues they found. Based on work with the local committees, model lighting standards were developed for each municipality. The intent of the standards is to effectively communicate the site lighting goals of the community to planning applicants and to create consistent review criteria that will result in an expeditious review process and produce efficient, effective, and attractive outdoor lighting.
