The Rose Music Center at The Heights has been rocking with big-name acts in front of large crowds since it opened last month, but some Huber Heights residents are saying they have heard enough.
In response to numerous complaints, the city plans to install removable fabric drapes at the music center to help reduce noise to nearby homes.
The insulated curtains, which are currently being manufactured, will be installed in the walkways and the opening between the roof and top row of seats.
The curtains will not be a permanent part of the music center, but can be pulled closed during shows, City Manager Rob Schommer told the Dayton Daily News.
“We knew there would be some noise that’d escape, but we didn’t know exactly how much until we fired it up,” Schommer said. “The concession stands and landscaping mitigate much of the noise, but there are still areas of direct paths.”
The project will cost $20,000 and will be completed later this month.
