Lyon: preparing its 3rd lighting master plan

The City of Lyon held its 3rd Regional Lighting Forum on the 26th of June 2012, bringing together lighting stakeholders (researchers, manufacturers, service providers, municipalities, etc.) from the region to discuss its upcoming 3rd lighting master plan.

The forum aimed to explore certain issues that were identified through the SWOT analysis of Lyon’s lighting strategy (conducted during the city’s 2nd Regional Lighting Forum held last October), as key topics to be addressed in its new lighting master plan.

The three areas of focus were: how to better incorporate residents’ feedback and requirements in the city lighting strategy; how private lighting initiatives can contribute to the city nightscape; and how to move towards an overall night-time strategy for the city. A lively discussion resulted in a number of recommendations for Lyon’s future lighting strategy and action plan.
