Document Description
Skyline High School proposes to install stadium lights at the track and football field located on the western side of the campus along Skyline Boulevard. The proposed lighting system will require the installation of four 70-foot light poles, each with 12 metal halide lamp fixtures, for a total of 48 light fixtures. The high school currently plays all home football games on campus. With the stadium lighting, the high school proposes to host a maximum of 10 evening games per year. The number of evening games will be split evenly between football games and soccer matches. The games will generally be played on Friday evenings at 5:00 p.m. for the junior varsity and 7:00 p.m. for the varsity. The games will typically end around 10:00 p.m. The lights will be turned off by 11:00 p.m. for all events.
