Supervisor Gagnon explains how the noise issue is resurfacing this year:
“Last fall, Warren Cross, a Cornellian with relevant expertise in acoustics, agreed to undertake a review of how the noise issue has been handled by others. What works and what does not? His report to the Town Board was expected in late 2022. He and I agreed that bringing the matter up during the holiday period was not a good idea, though.
“Rather than try to convey the huge diversity of ways this has been dealt with along with what worked and did not, Warren instead offered a draft noise law based on his conclusions. That was sent to the Town Board around the time of the first meeting in March and was to be the basis for a dialog with Warren at the second meeting on March 22. I will report next month what the Board decided to do next.”
At the 22 March Meeting, the Town Board also passed Resolution 86 of 2023 inviting the public to comment on this updated draft noise law up to and including April 19th when the Board will hold a public information session. All feedback is welcome via written comment or in person at the information session. If you need a hard copy of the draft law, please contact the Town Clerk’s office.
