This shall be completed before building permits are issued for the applicable phase of the development.
11. Flickering or flashing lights, searchlights, or other high intensity lights, if approved through the Office of Special Events, shall be shielded or pointed so as not to affect traffic safety.
12. Ensuring that all accessory structures, including those for which an exception has been provided, are located such that they do not interfere with the required visibility triangle at intersections and driveways.
