Malibu residents debate high school lighting scheme

January 28, 2009 |  3:40 am

The controversy over the Malibu High School's trees blocking views seems to have eased. But now, some residents are opposing a plan to install lights at the school's football field. The Malibu Times reports:

Nearly 100 people comprised of Malibu Park residents, school athletes, students, parents and officials gathered at Malibu High School at last week's Measure BB meeting to criticize or support the addition of permanent lighting to the school's football field and adjacent parking lot. The majority of residents said they opposed the lighting because it would destroy the ambience of the neighborhood, while parents, students and school officials said the lights would positively impact the school and the community. The tug of war continues as supporters and protestors remain in search of a compromise.
