Allston-Brighton Friends of Daly Field, Inc. Approves New Lights Policy

June 21, 2017

The Allston-Brighton Friends of Daly Field, Inc. (ABFDF) wishes to ensure a safe, welcoming environment in evening hours for users of the Daly Field athletic complex. At the same time, ABFDF endeavors to limit energy usage and any unnecessary light pollution in the area.

Therefore, the lights policy at Daly Field is as follows:
During evening hours, the lights will be on full (“Sports mode”) for all permitted activity on Field 1, Field 2, and/or the Tennis Courts IF permit holders request and pay for Sports mode lighting.

During non-permitted, “general public” hours, lights will be on, but dimmed. The dimmed lighting will still provide enough lighting for safe usage of the Daly Field complex by the general public.

This policy went into effect as of June 20, 2017 as voted by the Allston-Brighton Friends of Daly Field, Inc.
