Subject: Re: Athletic light pole height zoning text amendment





Thanks for sending the copies of the staff report summary and the zoning text amendments that modify the pole height limitations for athletic facilities.  The changes are very definitely to the good, since taller poles yield a better design with lower glare to players, increasing safety, and minimize light trespass beyond the playing area, helping compliance with property line illuminance requirements.
