The purpose of this project was for the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) 2017 Dark Sky team to assess the feasibility of the town of Bar Harbor applying for an International Dark Sky Community (IDSC) status. The team found it is possible for Bar Harbor to become an IDSC in future years. Recognition from the IDA will be mutually beneficial for the team’s sponsor Acadia National Park and the town itself. Bar Harbor already meets approximately 46% of the IDSC guidelines. The biggest factors that need to be changed, are the town’s lighting ordinances and implementation of fully shielded compliant street lights.
