Strands of white lights dangling from Fifth Avenue South businesses are now legal.
Naples City Council this morning approved changes to the law that governs lighting on Fifth Avenue South. The changes will allow Fifth Avenue South merchants to have strings of low-voltage LED-type lights on the first floor of the building.
The lights must be white, unless the city's design review board approves thematic colored lighting, cannot twinkle or flash and cannot be located on public property.
Temporary lighting, often referred to as holiday or seasonal lighting, will be allowed on the street from Nov. 15 through Jan. 15. Those lights, however, can be multicolored.
