If an amendment to the District Disruption Act is passed, those who leave the holiday lights will be turned on after 11 p.m.. m. Fined $ 100 for people complaining.
The North Vancouver District should discuss whether it should be illegal for homeowners to turn on their Christmas or Christmas lights after 11 p.m.. m. in single-family quarters at his meeting on Monday evening.
And the move has made a splash online, with many believing that in the middle of a global pandemic, they need to take counsel against flashlights with Counsel. Matthew Bond deciphered it as “a waste of time. ”
Council meeting at 7 p.m.. m. took place on the Monday after Postmedia News went to press, but Bond hoped the debate would be brief if this particular measure were rejected, especially in the dark months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
« I just think it’s ridiculous to cut the Christmas lights, » said Bond. « We’re currently limited in many ways to how we can celebrate and who to celebrate with. I think we’re outside and see our neighbors’ lights to see if they’re on at 8 p.m.. « . m. or midnight or 6 a. m. I think in the morning it will bring a lot of joy and relief to people. ”
Bond tweeted about the proposed amendment on Sunday, suggesting that the first person to be fined send him the bill because “this is a waste of time. ”
It’s 11:15 a.m. in my neighborhood. Decorative lights are on. In #northvan, it will soon be illegal if the council votes for a new statute tomorrow that will limit the times of day for the Christmas lights. Send me the first fine. That’s a waste of time. https: // t. co / sLGIAfO3vK image. Twitter. com / 0EkXo8FI34
The proposed change to the district’s disruption law came from a public workshop held more than a year ago, Mayor Mike Little said, and it was one of five proposed changes to that work that addressed « reasonable limits on light indicators. » concerned. ”
Homeowners would require that the holiday display lights be turned off every night after 11 p.m.. m. up to 7 a. m. the next day with violations punishable by a fine of $ 100. The limit values apply to Christmas or Christmas lights between Nov.. . 15 and Jan. . 15 and Halloween shows from Oct.. . 15 to Nov.. . 7th.
Little did not grant an interview on Monday, but the statement acknowledged that many residents « made their wishes clear about the weekend, » but Monday evening should be the council’s first opportunity to discuss the matter for the first time in a year.
“This area of concern emerged from a public workshop a year ago,” Little said in a statement emailed, “and the district has few tools to respond to exaggerated advertisements that neighbors may find annoying. ”
On Monday afternoon, Bond said he had received about 100 emails from constituents, most of whom were against the proposal.
« The data we had from our employees was that we had only three complaints about Christmas lights or Christmas lights in the last five years, » said Bond. « It seemed like in a church close to 90. 000 residents, one or two complaints over a five year period are not really a problem that requires hours of attention from the council and staff. ”
Usually the John Ribalkins family home on Chalet Place is one of those over-the-top Christmas displays, but he said they canceled it this year because of the pandemic.
« Why are you wasting your time doing this right now? » Said Ribalkin. « There are bigger things ahead of us. ”
There have been problems with neighbors for the past few years, Ribalkin said. As a courtesy, he turned on the lights to run from 5pm. m. to 11 p. m. , since “I also had to go to bed. ”
Ribalkin will, however, put up an element of the fantastic, the giant north star that usually hangs in the trees behind the house.
