Residents, businesses at odds over noise
EAST END, Ohio (Brad Underwood) -- Residents on both sides of the Ohio River are fed up with the noise coming from the Cincinnati Barge and Rail Terminal in the East End. Now the fight is the hands of the City Planning Commission.
Many of them moved into brand new condos in 2005 and 2006. Bulk transfer operations at the Terminal started in 2010.
The noise is also heard across the river, according to Sandy Boguszekski. She even put up a massive sign demanding the noise to stop.
At the center of the debate: The noise level and the zoning use. The Barge and Rail Terminal says it's in compliance with both. Neighbors disagree, and have even contracted noise studies they plan to present to the commission.
Residents of the communities are not opposed to a business making money in the neighborhood. They just don't want to hear the noise. They want the levels brought down and want things to go back to the way they used to be.
The Planning Commission meeting is open to the public and starts at 9 a.m. on Friday morning at Centennial Plaza on Central Avenue.
