The Charleston Gazette-Mail featured research scientist Tim Ezzell in a story about the potential creation of a “dark sky” park in West Virginia. Fairmont State University architecture students have produced a conceptual design for a planned addition to Calhoun County Park, which boasts some of the darkest night skies in the eastern United States. The goal is to help draw stargazers to the site.
The project is a partnership between UT, the Calhoun County Commission, the Appalachian Regional Commission, West Virginia University Extension Service, and the Fairmont State architecture department’s Community Design Assistance Center.
Ezzell is a faculty member in the Master of Public Policy and Administration program, which is based in the Department of Political Science.
