LIGHTS RULED IN VIOLATION
Holden Board Rejects Appeal From Pavilion
HY IHH <; Kl I I KK
I he Holden Beach Board <>l Adjustment
ruled last week ih.it lights outside Surfside
Pavilion violate a town ordinance and must ei
ther lx- redirected or taken down
Alter hearing testimony Sept. 16 and visit
nig the pavilion the following night to look at
the lights, the board voted unanimously last
Thursday to uphold the ruling ol loriner mtei mi
town manager (ius I I rich
Ulrich had ruled in July that tin- business vi
olalcd the ordinance because lights weren't
shielded and slimed oil the property lie said the
lights were a nuisance because the source ol
light was visible Irom outside the property.
F.rwui and Irene Snyder, who live on
Hillside Drive three houses east ol the pavilion,
had complained to the town because the lights
sinned inside their |>otv.h and house
Hoard ol adjustment members said last
week that two ol the lights attached to a pole on
the pavilion's miniature goll course shine di
rectly at the Snydci home.
"As lar as the ordinance goes, thai would
constitute a nuisance in my opinion." s.ml Vice
( 'hairinan Martin l eldi
Hoard members said the problem could he
easily corrected by shielding the lights 01 duell
ing them down al the goll couise I hey said
more lights could lv added to better illuminate
the goll course.
harlicr in the week, pavilion owners Alan
and l.yn llolden had testified that they thought
the lights illuminated their property.
They argued that the outside lighting at die
pavilion had been reduced considerably since
the ordinance took ellect last tail, and that the
lights were only used d.iinig the touiist season
Alan llolden didn't contest the board's ileci
sioii last Thursday, hut said he wasn't satisfied
with the ordinance because it doesn't give a
clear cut definition ol nuisance.
He said the town needs to delinc nuisance
lights in the ordinance instead ol waiting lor
souicNxly to complain llolden said there will
continue to Iv problems as lone |vrsonahties
"liveryUnly's level ol nuisance is ilillereni.
said Ins hmilier. l.yn " I lie way il stands now, it
depends ?lio your neighbors are as to what
problems you have."
Hie owners said they didn't want to s|vnd
money on I mlits lot the pavilion only to have
the town older thai they be removeil "We have
nothing to prevent us from making a mistake
again," Alan llolden said.
Town Manager (iary Parker siiul he thinks
the ordinance is"lairly clear" because it doesn't
allow any direct lighting to shine outside the
property it is on.
Parker said lights thai .ire aimed toward the
ground are line Lights tli.it shine oil the proper
ty they arc intended to illuminate and dnectly
into a neighbor 's house are a nuisance.
