Summerland noise bylaw waived

The annual requirement to waive the noise bylaw for the Blossom Run at Peach Orchard Campground will not have to come back next year.

The annual requirement to waive the noise bylaw for the Blossom Run at Peach Orchard Campground will not have to come back to the council table next year.

On March 12, council passed a resolution to waive the noise bylaw requirements for the campground during the weekend.

The waiver pushes the quiet time from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Victoria Day weekend, in order to allow the annual Blossom Run outdoor dance.

In the past, this resolution had come to the council table annually, but the latest resolution sets the long weekend event as an annual event.

“I appreciate the way we’re going about this,” said Coun. Martin Van Alphen.

The resolution received unanimous support of council.
