    57 Brierwood Ln Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric

    The streetlight (pole #03254) across from my house at 57 Brierwood Ln is blindingly bright. Streetlights on Shore Rd (pole #03203) and Balsam St (pole #03275) shine blinding light into my back yard. This blinding blue wave LED light has been shown to be extremely damaging to plant and animal life, and interferes with people's sleep and circadian functioning. These lights must be dimmed, pointed straight down, and shielded so no light is cast onto yards or houses. The research on the damaging effects of such blindingly bright LED lighting is extensive and unequivocal, and the sharp, black shadows they cast make neighborhoods less safe. This puts residents and the City at risk. Please address these problems as soon as possible. Thank you.

    The current night-time lighting at the Integrated Arts Academy includes several high, bright, sideways-facing flood lights that glare directly into the windows our home and our neighbors'. The lighting design creates significant light pollution and does not follow the guidelines provided by the city: https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/sites/default/files/PZ/Design-Guides/DG-Lighting.pdf

    I'm requesting that the lighting be re-designed to achieve safety, school use, and energy efficiency goals while reducing light pollution and glare onto houses. Please let me know how my neighbors and I can help and/or participate in a re-design process. Thank you!
