Last month I e-mailed Gil Bartee to get some more information about Big Bend Dark Skies. That was before I saw this thread, so I didn't know Casa Grande was their webmaster. Here's part of what Gil told me, dated Oct 30:
"Our plan is to hire a project manager once we have sufficient funds in the Big Bend Dark Skies account. The project manager will work with the owners of non-compliant lighting fixtures and assist them in changing the fixtures out to FCO fixtures.We also plan to start an educational program in the very near future and to start to distribute flyers and posters for local businesses similar to the ones attached.
We look forward to getting this project off the ground as soon as possible. To date we have had donations from Chicago, Boston, Iowa, Florida but nothing from Texas at this time."
