Local officials from Stanley, Ketchum, Sun Valley, Blaine County and the Sawtooth National Forest gathered in Ketchum City Hall on Thursday, May 23, to sign a memorandum of understanding that confirms their collective commitment to address light pollution and support dark skies in central Idaho. Nearly two decades of planning and policy decisions by city and county leaders, local businesses and organizations, and public land managers culminated in the designation of a reserve in December 2017. From left are Stanley Mayor Steve Botti, SNRA Area Ranger Kirk Flannigan, Sawtooth National Forest Supervisor Jim DeMaagd, Blaine County Commissioner Angenie McCleary, dark sky advocate Stephen Pauley, Ketchum Mayor Neil Bradshaw and Sun Valley Mayor Peter Hendricks.
