We in the Verde Valley would like everyone to help us out and let their voice be heard. Maybe someone in the group could comment on what lighting we should strive for, being that it looks like they're going to do it anyway. Please look at the attached URL's in order. The last URL is the form that you can fill out on line and email. (Updated Acrobat may be needed.) Please either print and send in or fill in online and make your voice heard. Regardless of whether you live in Sedona or not. Although the best solution is no lights at all. No installation costs, no maintenance, no energy used. It looks like the ADOT is going ahead with the project. It seems that the LED lighting on short poles on both sides would be an option we may be able to live with. Keeping the poles short should keep the light from trespassing into the skies much. Of course, reflected light upward will occur more with the lower units. And, with the lower units there will be more of them. But, some of the others light options may be more easily filtered. I'm sure there could be a better use of our tax money. And, since it's ADOT, everyone pays, not just Sedona residents. http://www.azdot.gov/highways/districts/flagstaff/Projects/PDF/SR89A_NighttimeLighting.pdf http://www.sedona.biz/adot-89a-lights-public-forum-sedona110509.php http://grandcanyonairport.org/highways/districts/flagstaff/Projects/PDF/101909_SR89A_ContinuousLightingCommentForm.pdf If the URL's won't click you through, copy and paste them into the address bar.
