WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The operators of the Oakdale Theater are going back before the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission in an attempt to find a compromise that would allow it to continue holding concerts.
A lawyer for the town last week said the municipal government can’t grant the theater an exemption to a noise ordinance, because the allowed decibel levels in the area are controlled by state law.
Neighbors had obtained a cease-and-desist order, complaining that concerts held in the dome section of the theater create too much noise.
The theater has said it cannot afford to soundproof the building.
The zoning board on Monday night will consider a permit request that would allow for events under the dome and to change the noise conditions of the permit.
