UPDATE: Entertainment Venue Garnering Noise Complaint From Nearby Businesses
DAYTON -- We told you about businesses complaining about a noisy venue causing a ruckus and damage to East 3rd Street. Now the owner of Rockstar Pro Wrestling is speaking out.
Rock star Pro Wrestling is a gem in the indie wrestling scene, but along with its many fans its gained some foes. Namely the owners of a few businesses in the area who say the music is just too loud.
Owner CW Scott says his entertainment venue has never caused an ounce of trouble in three years.
"We have double the security required, never had the cops called here for fights, no disgruntled people in the parking lot causing chaos nothing. We run a very tight ship," Scott said passionately Monday.
But shop owner Anne Troup says the noise has broken shelves and plates in her store across the street
"I know it's from the magnitude from this base that comes out of there," Hidden Treasures owner Anne Troup claimed.
Scott believes there's some bias involved against his mainly punk rock bands and audiences.
Scott tells us he did not have to make any changes to the building when he moved in. The thick installation foam and concrete walls provide an adequate sound barrier. Scott says he doesn't understand how he can be affecting area businesses because when his doors are open, theirs are closed.
"That's why I picked this area because we're not close to any residential. It got relabeled as an entertainment district," Scott continued Monday.
The owner tells us he agreed to sit down and have a mediation with the other business owners to find some common ground, but they backed out at the last minute. So now it is solely up to police to find a solution. We'll let you know what that is.
DAYTON -- A new business in town is causing a headache for a number of its neighbors. Business owners are complaining a new wrestling and concert venue is simply too loud.
Rockstar Pro Wrestling arena is located on East 3rd. Directly accross the street from Ann Troup's Hidden Treasures shop. Ann says the loud music has damaged glass shelves in her store.
"It reverberates my whole shop! That one just crashed and the dishes fell out and broke and I know its from the magnitude of this base that comes out of there," Troup explained. "I have to think there are no acoustics whatsoever in that building. I think it's an old factory."
Neighboring Artifex finishing company owner David Couch says he used an iPhone app to measure the noise.
"Registered 70 to 80 decimals 500 feet away," Couch told us Friday. "Those limits are being exceeded signifigantly."
Dayton Police tell us they are investigating the complaints and they will enforce the noise ordinance if necessary.
These business owners say they like their new neighbor and don't want to see them leave, they just want them to do what's neccesary to adhere to the law.
"It may or may not be expensive to modify those buildings but that was the choice taken when they choose to use that building for that. You still have to live within the codes and ordinances," Couch said firmly.
We did talk to the owner of RockStar Pro Wrestling, Chad Parker, late Friday night. He told us, the illegal noise complaints against his business are unfounded.
Parker says they've been in business for 3 years and have never received a citation or been in trouble of any kind.
Parker says they will work with investigators to put the complaints to rest.
