Dark Skies in Emporium

 The Emporium Borough is slowly working to make the Borough a Dark Sky area. We have started by replacing twenty-one street lights (Picture Below) in the business district. As you can see below the street light on the right below does not direct light straight down. The light actually goes up and horizontal. The Light on the left  makes the light go straight down to light the area more efficiently. We are working on an ordinance which would require all residents and businesses of the Borough of Emporium to replace outdoor lights when their existing lights need replaced. This will take many years because we would not want to put a burden on residents.
