Lighting Surveyor Town of Hideout

Hideout, UT


Request for Proposals to Measure Light Throughout Town
October 2021

The Town of Hideout has expressed a strong interest in protecting its Dark Skies for its residents and visitors alike. The Town has a draft Dark Skies code ready to adopt but would like to understand the current (base) lighting conditions throughout the Town.

Desired Methodology and Deliverables:
The successful Applicant will measure sky quality (artificial lighting) during two generally defined time periods:

  1. No snow on the ground, and
  2. Snow on the ground

These time periods were chosen due to the impact of snow on light reflectivity. Approximately twenty (20) Measurement Sites will be selected to be representative of the Town of Hideout and its surroundings. Each site will be measured during the two time periods outlined above.

International Dark Sky Community Accreditation:
The Town of Hideout is also interested in becoming an International Dark Sky Place. This process can take up to three years and involves a lighting survey, such as the one described above, as well as mitigation (i.e., shielding, color temperature modifications, etc.) plans for lights not considered Dark Sky friendly, specifically for Town-owned lighting fixtures. The Town would like an alternate proposal to assist with this application and recommended mitigation process.

Please submit:

  • Proposal with costs for each visit (no snow and with snow on the ground) to measure sky quality and light pollution.
  • Supplemental/alternate submittal: Proposal and fee to assist the Town with International Dark Skies accreditation and recommended mitigation measures for Town-owned light fixtures.

Submittal Deadline (proposal by email is fine):

November 12, 2021 by 5pm MT

Town Clerk
