If you haven't been paying attention, music venues have come under increased pressure after a new noise ordinance was passed this summer.
HOWEVER, at the last city council meeting on Oct. 19, councilors agreed to revisit the ordinance after receiving negative feedback from artists.
Tonight, Bend Residents for a Sensible Noise Ordinance are meeting at 6pm at the Horned Hand to brainstorm and discuss what should/shouldn't be included in a revised sound ordinance, which, as it is currently worded, requires a permit for "noise" between 10pm and 7am. The next city council meeting is Wed., Oct 3.
Tonight's meeting will also be the first gathering of the newly-formed Central Oregon Music and Arts Coalition.
All are welcome.
