The Rockland City Council agreed March 29 to amend the entertainment license for the Trackside Restaurant to allow music to be played beyond 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

The council voted 4-0 (with Councilor Tom Molloy absent) to change the conditions on the license that were imposed March 8.

The council had imposed the 11 p.m. limit on when music could be played after three neighbors to the restaurant complained about noise, vibrations and lights. The Trackside Restaurant is located in the train station at the intersection of Pleasant and Union streets. The station is located in a commercial zone, directly across from residences.

The restaurant’s owners and the neighbors met March 29 with councilors. The owners informed the council of steps that had been taken to reduce the noise.

One of the neighbors who has raised concerns is Sandra Dillon who operates a bed and breakfast across the street from the restaurant. She said the noise is disturbing to patrons of her business. Linda and David Webbenhurst of State Street said the noise can be heard inside their home with the windows closed.

Restaurant co-owner Kelly Woods said that an 11 p.m. restriction would have meant the restaurant would have given up on live entertainment. She said it would have made no sense to hire someone to come in, set up their equipment and then shut down in two hours.
