The city is reviewing noise bylaws, but there’s no place that I could find on the city website where I can provide a comment as to what I thought should be done.
So I’m asking you as our councillor to not allow the extension of time from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. As it is at present, the noise continues after 11 p.m. and we have to call bylaw to shut it down. If you extend it to 1 a.m. it will continue to 1:15 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. And we will have to call bylaw then. When they decided to build Lansdowne, they knew they were building in a residential area. Now they’re trying to turn their backs on Ottawa residents in order to meet the needs of a special group.
I can understand extensions or variances to other noise applications. Street-fixing, other construction, snow-removal and such are necessary. But the noise from these very noisy concerts is not necessary. They are just discretionary commercial ventures. Such ventures should never have been contemplated for a residential area.
Please respect the wishes of those who voted for you.
