NO To Saint Ignatius Permanent Stadium Lights
We the neighbors of Saint Ignatius College Preparatory, strongly oppose the installation of four permanent, 90ft tall, football field stadium lights. These lights are proposed to be in use potentially 150 nights a year and often until 9-10 pm. They will be used to host night time games, practices, and a number of other sports activities. In addition, one of the light poles will hold 5G Verizon wireless equipment.
These permanent lights will bring unprecedented nighttime noise, traffic, parking congestion, litter, and pre-post game celebrations to our quiet residential neighborhood ~~ bringing an end to quiet evenings in our own homes. No more quiet family dinners, watching TV in our own living rooms, or being able to put our children to bed early. Not to mention, the eyesore of 90ft poles towering over our neighborhood 24/7.
We urge the SF Planning Commission to deny this permit and insist Saint Ignatius (like other SF High Schools) continue their sports programs during daylight hours.
