[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Union 12-9-2014 by Ord. No. 5327. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The light intensity from sports lights, whether on public or private property, shall not exceed 0.5 footcandle along any property line or 0.3 footcandle at a residential property line during the hours from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Light intensity from sports lights after 10:00 p.m. as measured at a residential property line shall not exceed 0.1 footcandle. The objective of these specifications is to minimize undesirable off-premises effects. No light shall shine into windows or onto streets and driveways in such manner as to interfere with or detract from a resident's quality of life. To achieve these requirements, the intensity of such light sources shall be controlled with light shielding or lower-wattage bulbs, or both.
Violation of this chapter shall be enforced by the Code Enforcement Officer or his or her designee.
Any person violating any of the provisions of this chapter shall be subject to one or more of following: imprisonment in the county jail, or in any other place provided by the municipality for the detention of prisoners, for any term not exceeding 90 days, or by a fine not exceeding $1,250, or by a period of community service not exceeding 90 days, to become effective on the effective date of this section.
