Organizational Committee review:
The City has been getting noise complaints about special events at the fairgrounds such as weddings, etc… The Fair Board has agreed that they will keep closing down special events at 12:30a. All guests will have to be off the grounds by 1am. They want to fence in certain areas of the fairgrounds, no alcohol will be allowed outside these areas. Doorways will be monitored by security officials. Parking will only be allowed on the west side of the building in the field, no parking will be allowed on the east side closest to the residential areas. There will be an event manager present the entire time the building is rented for any special events. The Fair Board is waiting for a noise ordinance from the city, Carrington Police Department will be getting a noise meter to properly monitor noise levels. The city will meet with fair board members during the next special event and they will measure the noise impact on the residential areas near the fairgrounds. Residents will be informed when the meeting will take place and will be able to attend the testing.
