Mayor Patrick Impreveduto recently met with a state Senator and a representative of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority – the entity that owns the Arts Center - to address ways in which all parties can limit the amount of noise disturbances caused by Live Nation events being held in the Arts Center’s parking lots.
Impreveduto explained to Senator Joseph Kryillos (R-Monmouth) and Ron Gravino, Vice Chairman of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority that Live Nation’s non-concert events such as auto races and street fairs often flood the Mayor’s office with noise complaints from local citizens.
“Holmdel’s residents are proud to host a world-class venue such as the PNC Bank Arts Center in our community,” said Impreveduto. “What our residents would like, however, is a reprieve from the excessive early-morning noise that accompanies events that take place not on stage, but on the Arts Center’s grounds.”
Impreveduto told Kryillos and Gravino that some events have music blasting from the Art Center’s parking area as early as6:30 a.m. on the weekends.
Gravino said he understood the residents’ concerns and assured Impreveduto that he would do everything possible to work with the Township and Live Nation to find a solution that benefits all parties.
“Both Senator Kryillos and Commissioner Gravino could not have been more gracious in their willingness to help maintain our community’s quality of life,” said Impreveduto. “I am quite confident that with their assistance we will do what is right for both Holmdel’s residents and Live Nation’s patrons.”
