This designation was a design to showcase Bon Accord as rural community with the desire to grow in a niche focused on tourism and community development. This process was multi-faceted ranging from looking at lighting throughout the community, education on the appreciation of a dark rural sky and the importance of its cultural and environmental significance for generations to come.
The Town is working on a complete streetlight retrofit this year, public outreach and working with other communities in the goal of finding lighting efficiencies.
Bon Accord also wishes to welcome visitors year round to visit, shop and see a night sky which is just not possible in large communities. Being only 20 minutes we welcome everyone out for the experience!
