Ordinance 22-12 does not protect Anchor Park from having bright lights.

(A Town official) put on social media a Resolution from 1985 saying Anchor Park would be a “dark park.” Resolutions are not binding. If the Farragut Neighborhood Preservation Partnership group was concerned about more than ballfield lights (from First) Baptist (Concord) all parks would have been included in this ordinance. The second reading of this ordinance will be in January. (Town officials) need to further amend this ordinance to include Anchor Park.
