No Decision On Oakdale Permit

Parking and the use of the Dome at the  in Wallingford, Conn., were on the front burner at the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting June 8, with the matter of noise taking a back seat as Live Nation tries to resolve permit issues for the venue.

No decisions were made, and proposed permit changes were tabled until the PZC meets in July.

Concerts will continue at the 4,560-capacity Oakdale Theatre. Live Nation attorney Joan Molloy told the New Haven Register the company is “still working with the town” on the noise issue and “we feel that we’ve made progress.”

Plans were presented to improve traffic flow and VIP parking, which town planner Kacie Costello said “show a great improvement to traffic flow.”

As for events in the Dome section of the venue, which can accommodate 1,700, Molloy told the paper Oakdale officials are considering reconfiguring the stage to reduce sound escaping the building.

The town of Wallingford issued a cease-and-desist letter to Live Nation over the Oakdale in December, and the two sides have since been trying to work out a compromise to allow the venue to continue staging concerts.
