Re: “Bridal Brawls: The Old Lantern Fights Its Neighbors Over Noise

There is fault here on both sides, but the real guilty party is the Town. Whenever you have a large commercial venture in a residential area...especially a quiet rural one...you need to have proper regulations in place.

The Old Lantern operated in a "neighborly" manner for many years, and the existing residents nearby tolerated occasional issues. Then new owners expanded the business, took advantage of the lack of regulation, and also the new homeowners who bought the residences nearby had no relationship with the new operator. Their quality-of-life went down as business grew. This led to conflict.

Sadly, this is not an uncommon scenario. And it is the prime reason why zoning exists in the first place. Let's hope the Town can adopt regulations that reasonably satisfy both parties.

Re: “Bridal Brawls: The Old Lantern Fights Its Neighbors Over Noise

I would never buy property near a wedding venue because every weekend is going to be noisy. That these people bought a house next door to the Old Lantern, and have been throwing fits over wedding noise, is completely stupid.

These neighbors are not only stupid, they are entitled douches and I hope a judge forces them to pay the Old Lantern's legal fees and forces them to take classes in how not to be stupid and volunteer at the country club to learn how annoying entitled people are.

Pro tip: Don't buy a house near a railroad crossing then complain about the train.
