As reported recently in the Denver Post, Morrison has approached Jefferson County for assistance with the noise concerns about Red Rocks concerts. Public meetings are expected in coming weeks; in the meantime Denver, Jeffco, and Morrison town officials are all trying to get a handle on how to deal with concerns.
This article by Josie Klemaier was followed by a Post editorial. Public comments follow both articles.
Here are our final results for the 2014 season, based on subjective responses of area residents. Note that ratings (from 1 to 5) were collected for 66 of the 105 concerts. Concerts not rated were given a “1” shaded in gray. Click image to see a readable pdf.
Sixty-five percent of all responses were 1s or 2s; 20% were 4s and 5s. Only 15 of the concerts rated got any 5s; 29 got 4s. Clearly, most concerts can be successful (and profitable for Denver) without creating major annoyance.
