Model Lighting Ordinance with User's Guide

2011

The MLO must be adapted to the laws and practices of each state and locale. It is generally best adopted as an overlay zoning ordinance. This means that it overlays, but is different from, land-use zoning. It can be added to or integrated into existing ordinances or codes and cross-referenced to other applicable codes and ordinances such as the electrical code, the sign code, planning ordinances, etc.
