Winthrop adopts Dark Sky Ordinance


After two years of proposals and discussions, on July 21, 2021, the Winthrop Town Council approved changes in the town’s outdoor lighting regulations intended to reduce light pollution.


The council adopted Winthrop Planning Commission recommendations that were developed in response to efforts by the Methow Dark Sky Coalition, a local nonprofit organization, to make the town part of a valley-wide “dark sky community” devoted to mitigating light pollution.
