In 2002, the City of Middletown approved a law prohibiting live outdoor music for eating and drinking businesses. The law was approved after concerns were raised about how outdoor music could impact the quality of life of neighboring homes and establishments. While a business can have live music inside of their establishment, some business owners have come forward to ask that we reconsider this law to allow for outdoor performances. As a part of this process, we are seeking input from City residents to see how they feel about multiple businesses having live outdoor music, since it is possible their neighborhoods could be affected by the noise. Any information related to names or addresses will be kept confidential; however, we will use the rest of this survey when deliberating the law and reviewing zoning standards.
