Mountain Express: Hailey Changes Its Mind—Again—on Outdoor Concerts

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2013 at 9:00 AM

City officials in Hailey have backpedaled on a plan which would have allowed more outdoor music into the later evening hours.

In July, the Hailey City Council amended the city's noise ordinance that would have extended special-use permits to play amplified music on the city's Main Street until 11:30 p.m. in the downtown business zone and until midnight at the Hailey Rodeo Arena.

But this morning's Idaho Mountain Express reports that the council altered the language again during its Sept. 16 meeting, saying that noise limit extensions beyond 10 p.m. would be "made allowable only for special, one-time public events," using the Northern Rockies Music Festival as an example. The new change also rolls back the Main Street noise curfew to 10 p.m.

The Mountain Express reports that Hailey Council Member Martha Burke "expressed her concern over the July amendment, saying she was hesitant to support business to the point where we jeopardize where we live in this town."
