Aware of the need for lighting in parking lots for safety and the need for additional beautification of parking lots, the Mission City Council approved changes in ordinances regarding city policies of both at a Monday meeting.
Lighting plans for parking lots will be examined whenever a building permit is sought for safety against vandalism, theft and assault, and for the convenience and comfort of the user.
Levels of lighting will be regulated to provide sufficient lighting but not cause interference on public thoroughfares or encroach on the privacy of occupants of adjacent buildings. The plan must show the types and heights of the lights to be used, which must provide illumination at 10-foot intervals.
