"On Wednesday, the Sequoia Union High School District Board of Trustees will consider adopting a policy for using the temporary lights, as well as a resolution exempting the project from local zoning ordinances.
Sequoia spokeswoman Bettylu Smith noted there has been no notification from the court that it couldnï¿½t move forward with plans to install the temporary lights.
School districts can, by a two-thirds vote of its board, find that a proposed change on school property is exempt from a local ordinance. Trustees will take such a vote Wednesday night arguing the temporary nature of the lights exempts the project from local regulations.
With the lights going in shortly, the board will consider a policy on using them.
Under the proposal, lights and a public address system could be used for four football games starting at sunset until 10:30 p.m. Soccer and lacrosse teams would each be able to use the lights for six weeknight games from sunset to 8:30 p.m. Lastly, school and youth sport practices would use lights on weeknights until 8:30 p.m. There was no limit to the number of practices for which lights could be used. "
Note that the planned usage already exceeds what the Board previously stated would be allowed.
