Meeting On Field Lighting Nov. 17

The county Park Authority is planning to hold a public meeting Nov. 17 at W.T. Woodson High School to present the results of a consultant's report on athletic-field lighting in Fairfax County.

The report, and public reaction to it, will be used to develop specifications and guidelines for athletic-field lighting. It will also be used to address concerns of park neighbors, create cheaper lighting systems and identify the latest technology to reduce glare and spill from lighting systems.

County parks officials have not endorsed or rejected any part of the consultant's report. They are waiting to hear from the public.

The report is available for review at the Fairfax County Park Authority, 12055 Government Center Pkwy., Suite 421, Fairfax, or at the Park Authority's Web site, http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/fieldlighting.htm .

To speak at the meeting, call Judy Pedersen at 703-324-8662 or e-mail her at parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov .

Comments on the report will be accepted for 30 days after the meeting. The public comment period will close Dec. 19. Written comments should be directed to Lynn S. Tadlock, director of the planning and development division, Fairfax County Park Authority, 12055 Government Center Pkwy., Suite 421, Fairfax, Va. 22035.
