Just a …..NOTE….

Over the summers several families have indicated excessive music noise.    The association does not police so individuals must deal with it themselves.

The speed of sound is the distance travelled during a unit of time by a sound wave propagating through an elastic medium. In dry air at 20 °C (68 °F), the speed of sound is 343.2 metres per second (1,126 ft/s). This is 1,236 kilometres per hour (768 mph), or about one kilometer in three seconds or approximately one mile in five seconds.

So…we all like music…just our own music.  A good idea may be facing the speakers towards the cottage

Noise Control (By-law 2011-099) 

The Noise Bylaw regulates different types of “noise” and the days and times specific types of noises are prohibited. “Noise” is any unwanted sound that is clearly audible and of such a volume that it causes a disturbance to the person listening to the sound. Musical noise from a stereo, television, amplifier or musical instrument is generally prohibited at any time in residential areas. Likewise, the persistent barking of a dog is not permitted to disturb residents of Bracebridge at any time. Domestic tools such as lawnmowers, leaf blowers, snow blowers, saws and the like are not permitted to disturb the residents of Bracebridge between the hours of 9:00pm and 7:00am (9:00am on Sundays and holidays). The entire Noise Control Bylaw may be viewed at By-law 2011-099”.
