The drama with Denver residents and the Red Rocks Amphitheater seems to be ongoing, as they held a town meeting last week to discuss the quality of life issues regarding the sound output from this outdoor venue. For the past year, we have seen numerous reports of disgruntled residents growling at the venue, and have heard that people within a half a mile radius are complaining that their windows are rattling late into the evening hours. Since this venue is owned by the city of Denver, locals are looking to their government for answers. Their concerns have definitely been heard, and as of January first, the city of Denver implemented a new mandate to lower the volume altogether, which state “the average decibels for an entire show shall not exceed 105 decibels for one-minute averages after midnight on weekdays and 1 a.m. on weekends and holidays.” This is 10 decibels quieter than your average rock concert, and poses the question “how quiet is too quiet?.”
