Fight Intrusive Lights @ White Rock
CRIME LIGHT MEETING AT WINFREY POINT
The installation of
lakeside light poles has been suspended.
A public meeting is called for May 22 7:30 PM at Winfrey Point.
voice their opinions about this plan.
staff will attempt to justify the lights based on
?security ?, but there is no justification to
over-light the lakeside lots.
most common park crime is burglary of motor vehicles (BMV), and most BMV's
occur during the day ? when burglars can see.
Over-lighting facilitates night BMV's. Burglars can't see into a dark car.
There's no evidence of significant night crime on the lakeside.
There's no justification to light the lakeshore for "security".
Crime lights will attract people to the park after the Midnight curfew.
Security cameras are a more effective deterrent - day and night.
Over-lighting will damage the lake?s natural beauty

Come to the
meeting on May 22, 7:30 pm at Winfrey Point.
