Otero County light pollution ordinance

Excerpt from the New England Light Pollution Advisory Group (NELPAG Circular No. 13)

+ Warren Offutt (Cloudcroft, NM) writes [on 1995 Feb. 2]: "The 41st Legislature of the State of New Mexico has formally declared New Mexico to be a 'dark sky state'. While this resolution has no teeth, it has been helpful in engendering the support of local jurisdictions. The largest city in [Otero] County, Alamogordo, passed a lighting control ordinance about 5 years ago. We have recently gotten the approval of the Trustees of Cloudcroft to proceed with an ordinance for that village, and just this past Monday, got the agreement of the County Commissioners to proceed on a [Otero] County-wide ordinance."
