A new article on the noise issue appeared in the Denver Post Monday April 21, 2014. A few choice quotes below:
“You can get the craziest Metallica concert, and that’s not even close to what we’re talking about,” Morrison Mayor Sean Forey said. “This is something new and different than anything in the past.”
Another was quoted as saying the noise made his family feel “like prisoners in our own house.”
“It’s like Guantanamo — with loud, thumping music and sleep deprivation,” the resident told town leaders.

What We Hear, Here and There:
“[the new restrictions are] terrible news. It does not seem a bit different to us. They play until 1:30 am on weekends, it is just horrible news in my opinion.”
“We have attended and enjoyed several concerts up at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and we generally support appropriate and sustainable concerts. We are willing to try out the new sound regulations for the upcoming season, however we have observed a heavy increase in not only the sound (especially the base sound), but also the number of concerts and the length of time the concerts occur each night. These severe increases seem to have occurred within the last few years. In 2013, there were several concerts that had sound levels until 2AM that were nearly impossible to bear without retreating into a basement room with ear plugs in our ears.”
“such a shame to take a national treasure and defile it…”
“Our community should not have to tolerate this abusive behavior by a previously harmonious and respectful neighbor. Allowing this to continue infringes upon our rights. Children and working adults should not be expected to wait until midnight to get to sleep, and then struggle through the working day sleep-deprived. These noise levels will prevent residents from enjoying their back yards and influence property values.”
