QUESTION ADDRESSED TO MORINVILLE COUNCIL AND MAYORAL CANDIDATES
There have been complaints that not all residence feel fairly represented with regards to the building of the Morinville Community Cultural Centre. Adjacent residences feel threatened that they will loose their ability to enjoy peace and quiet in their homes, health concerns related to sleep interruption and loss of real estate values.
My question is this:
Do you believe this Town Council should be pro-active in ensuring noise attenuation is constructed at the same time as the Centre is being built; or
Should you wait to see how many complaints and damages are registered prior to opening talks on the subject.
Point to consider: The Architect presented a sound study based on the building materials used and layout, it concluded events such as concert level noise will be loud enough to interfere with speach in neighboring back yards.
