This is an e-mail I recieved today from a few of my friends @ Chitownracing

Dont know if anyone can make this or not. Short notice. I can't make it. No


There will be a meeting on Tuesday, December 15th, 2009 at 6:00PM, held at the Town Hall for the Town of Paris located at 16607 Burlington Rd, Union Grove, WI. This meeting will be in regards to a study of noise and light pollution alleged to eminate from Great Lakes Dragaway. If you can possibly make it to this meeting, we would GREATLY appreciate it! We need as many fans of GLD as possible. We are sorry for the short notice, as the town scheduled this meeting with very little advance notice. Tell EVERYONE you know who is either a racer or a fan of the sport! This is VERY important and we need your support!!

maybe the farmers can't hear their combines over the car engines. whatever. they want to prevent street racing.... closing the tracks is not the way to do it.

Did a little searching this morning, nothing really coming up. The same info is posted on tons of other boards so hopefully they will get a good turn out. Will keep my eyes open for any info and post up.

Thanks again to Chrissy for posting this up in the first place.

There isnt shit but corn around GLD. Who the fuck would want it shut down? Some people just need something to bitch about and its getting ridiculous. GLD is a great place to get together and legally race...except for the creepy old guy in the back selling outdated/overpriced merchandise....i mean who wants a racing game on a floppy disk for $20? If they close it down, the people in the area will be bitching about how their family members are killing themselves because of street racing. Some people just need a swift kick in the ass.

Al Gore can choke on a dick. He is all about "going green" and saving the earth but I hear the fuckers electric bills come out to more than most people pay for their mortgage each month. Im all about saving the Earth but this global warming is a crock of shit. Obviously he has never lived through a Chicago winter. No warming here.

I'm not sure whats happening yet. People these days like to bitch about everything.

Just like the people who bought homes around and near RT 66 knew it was a track when they bought the homes....then they start bitching.

Anyway...if I hear anything I'll keep everyone updated

Follow up:


As a followup to the town meeting held on December 15th, in regard to noise and light pollution alleged to emanate from Great Lakes Dragaway, first of all, we would like to thank everyone for the show of support. Many of you showed up on VERY short notice to attend this meeting, many more wrote letters of support. There will be a followup meeting in January.

FROM THE KENOSHA NEWS:

Study finds Paris drag strip’s noise level isn’t very loud
BY DENEEN SMITH
dsmith@kenoshanews.com


PARIS — A sound study shows that noise levels near the Great Lakes Dragaway on race days are only slightly louder than the sound of normal conversation.

That’s according to engineering firm Bonestroo, a Mequon company hired to study sound pollution in the town and recommend possible ordinances to address sound and light pollution.

Results of the study were revealed during a special Town Board meeting Tuesday night, attended by about 100 people, most of them drag racing fans.

The Town Board called for the study after a series of contentious meetings involving Great Lakes Dragaway, with some residents near the race track complaining about noise levels on racing days.

Bonestroo set sound monitors in Paris during two weekends in September, measuring sound levels in 15-minute increments over six days. The monitors were placed on properties near Great Lakes, near Pheasant Run landfill, the We Energies power plant and near the Kenosha Beef factory.

Richard Osa of Bonestroo said the sound study, conducted during two weekends when there was racing at Great Lakes, showed sound levels peaked off the drag strip at about 70 decibels A-scale.

As a comparison, he said, the sound level of normal conversation is about 65 decibels, while 140 decibels is a sound loud enough to cause hearing damage.

Osa said municipal ordinances typically limit daytime residential sound levels at about 65 decibels, with nighttime levels at about 50 decibels.

Dan Feldt of Bonestroo said that while the study measured sound, what people consider a nuisance noise is more subjective.

“I know that for a number of the people here the sound at the drag strip is not noise, it’s entertainment,” Feldt said. “What we did here is monitor sound; how it is perceived by people is going to be a matter of perspective.”

People in the audience questioned the study and the town’s intent to create a noise ordinance.

“My concern is, and probably the concern of everyone in this room, is that you are going to draft this ordinance trying to target Great Lakes drag strip,” said a man who described himself as a professional drag racer from Bristol.

He suggested the board instead limit residential building near the race track.

The board voted to have the town’s attorney work with Bonestroo to create draft ordinances to govern sound and light pollution, with the draft ordinance presented at the January meeting.

The board has set a Jan. 15 deadline for written comments at the town hall.

Too bad that this seems like it's gonna be limited somehow in the future. I think the best thing to do would be to limit residential building around the area. I mean, really, there is NOTHING much out there now anyways.

I have been going there for so long it would be a shame for it to be regulated to death, literally.

About the Sound Study

We would like to let everyone know that the GLD owners & staff are aware of the many questions about the recent sound study and the future outcome of the track, and have seen how large the support from not only our racers & fans, but the entire drag racing community as a whole is! Currently, there is not much to say, other than a huge thanks to everyone who is supporting us, and that we continue to work with the Town of Paris to come to a resolution that works for everybody on both sides of the issue. Your efforts are not going unnoticed.

As of January 11th, there is still no set date for when the next town meeting will be addressing the sound study issue. As soon as there is more to say, we will post it here online, as well as send out our email newsletter. Speaking of which, have you signed up for the newsletter? Our newsletter is the best way to stay up to date on information from GLD!
