The National Corvette Museum has had a year full of ups and downs. The NCM Skydome was officially completed, after the infamous sinkhole swallowed the floor and a handful of precious Corvettes, and will be celebrated next month.
But, the NCM Motorsports Park has come under fire after residents of Clarke Circle, neighbors of the motorsports park, complained of noise levels coming from the facility during events.
Now, the NCM Motorsports Park has officially taken action to remedy the situation after initial sound readings from acoustical and sound engineers. The NCM released an official statement notifying residents they will begin construction of a permanent noise berm, which has been given an expedited green light.
The 14-foot high structure, dipping to 8- and rising to 20-feet in some cases, will provide necessary noise reduction from the homes positioned outside of the track. The track also states it will receive a full, extensive acoustical report in September, and will then analyze that information to build additional noise berms.
In the short term, the PA speakers have been redirected, which the NCM says has had a positive impact, too.
The news comes after Warren County served the NCM Motorsports Park with a legitimate noise violation, and a $100 fine weeks later for continued noise pollution.
