It comes down to noise pol­lu­tion

Truro Daily News - - Opinion -

To the ed­i­tor:

In the re­cent ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing the West Earl­town Mo­tocross Track, Mr. Spencer de­scribes the op­po­si­tion as a cul­tural dif­fer­ence. It is not. It is a noise pol­lu­tion prob­lem.

Those op­posed are long-term res­i­dents of the area, some born and raised here.

Op­er­a­tors of tracks who care about their com­mu­ni­ties re­quire muf­flers on the bikes us­ing the fa­cil­i­ties. Mr. Spencer’s son had a prac­tice track in the area for a num­ber of years that had no com­plaints from neigh­bors be­cause it was lo­cated where the sound wouldn’t echo through the val­ley.

Mr. Spencer him­self states he had events ev­ery week­end from Sept. 24 to Oct. 29 yet keeps say­ing it will op­er­ate on a lim­ited ba­sis.

After pub­licly stat­ing that was the last event for the sea­son, the noise con­tin­ued the next week­end.
