From a conversation on the RealCrozetVA Facebook page –
I am really happy that I live near the Crozet pool dome. However, if I lived next to the dome, I would likely be unable to sleep with my windows open due to the noise.
I can see the argument being made that the noise interferes with nearby homeowners’ ability to quietly enjoy their homes.
On the day of the dome’s installation late last month, I didn’t notice the sound, but this morning when riding to and back home from Crozet Elementary, the sound was startling. I would have recorded the sound, but a train was going by. 🙂
One of the differences apparently is that the noise of the fans or generator (or both) is never-ending.
One anticipates baseball games, soccer matches, swimming meets, the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival (which is the weekend of 13/14 October) … But this is something that was not anticipated nor could it have been anticipated by neighbors.
Good neighbors work together on this such of thing, so I don’t have any question that the sound can be addressed, it’s just a matter of how and when.
*Disclosure: I’ll be getting a membership there soon …
