What was cooking on the Woodstock Square today that caused the loud noise throughout the day? There must have been some type of organized festival on the Square that included amplified sound. And loud, it was!
Even at 6:15PM the noise could be heard five blocks from the Square. Was it really necessary to broadcast the music so that it was so loud?
This issue was raised a couple of years ago, and the response from the Opera House, which apparently controls the use of the Square and the volume of what I'll call "noise", was that the sound levels would be monitored during events on the Square.
I guess that was that year, and not this year.
Perhaps a new request will result in renewed monitoring and lower sound levels. I can't really see any good reason to allow residents for many blocks around the Square to be annoyed by the music from an event right on the Square itself.
