Werner: You talk about me, but not to me. i own the Hinterhof, the subject of your feature. i have met with the County. Chelan repealed its noise ordinance and has declined to adopt the state version. Instead Chelan has an 'unwritten' rule that 10:00pm starts the quiet hour. We have honored that, as a courtesy to residents across the river. the City's noise ordinance is a personal conduct law and was not written to address a legal organized music activity. we have worked for months with the City to figure out an equitable arrangement. i have long requested an audience with the Council to discuss this. However, the City allows music at its Gazebo that it has objected to at Hinterhof and both properties are zoned the same. Also, during festivals such as Octoberfest the City allows outdoor (tent) music as late at midnight. Again, the City does not want HInterhof to play until midnight, but the zoning is the same. THe Sound of Music production blankets Ski Hill with noise all summer long. You mention a '50 foot' rule. what would happen if that was imposed on Leavenworth Summer Theatre? i agree that outdoor music should be regulated in balance with neighbor concerns. but, i suggest the regulation should be fair and consistent across the board, and not based on what a particular property owner does or does not like. our calendar is posted at http://www.leavenworthbeergarden.com take a look, Werner, maybe you will find a night of music that you enjoy.
