In April 2016, San Bernardino County District 3 Supervisor James Ramos appointed the San Bernardino County Dark Sky Committee (SBCDSC) to interact with the County about its lighting regulations and code, in consideration of the need of dark skies to maintain both lifestyle and the tourism economy in the Desert and Mountain regions of the County.
Three MBCA Board members are part of this Committee: Pat Flanagan, Seth Shteir, and Laraine Turk.
As of October 2016, the Committee has worked with Joshua Tree National Park and the International Dark Sky Association as the Park pursues a Dark Sky Park designation from IDA. The Committee will also be involved in the Park's Night Sky Festival on October 28-30, 2016.
Discussion with the Supervisor and County Code Enforcement is planned for November.
