Ski area lights get closer look in Francestown

"The Zoning Board of Adjustment unanimously voted to hire a lighting consultant Wednesday night to review about 60 new lights added to the Crotched Mountain Ski & Ride last season. The ski resort is on track to open the first week of December for this winter season, but the debate over the illumination of the night sky continues."

"Fred Ward of Stoddard said he lives 15 miles from Crotched Mountain Ski & Ride and the illumination of the night ski interferes with his star gazing. He brought two experts with him to Wednesday night’s meeting — Massachusetts cardiologist Mario Motta and International Dark-Sky Association member Kelly Beatty of Chelmsford, Mass."

"Motta said light pollution is known to cause numerous health concerns, from breast and prostate cancer, obesity and psychiatric issues."
