Posted October 05, 2019 15:03:25Black velvet curtain is being replaced with black ones for an end of year event in the city.
The move has been met with some criticism from some residents in the area.
“I think they are doing a very good job, I think they do a good job and they’re doing it in a way that is going to be environmentally sustainable,” said Jennifer Broussard, who lives on the block next to where the curtains are installed.
The curtains will be replaced on September 27.
“It’s an attempt to reduce the noise, it’s an effort to reduce our air quality and it’s going to have a positive impact on the environment,” said Councillor Scott Thompson.
Ms Broustard said the curtains were installed around the corner from the house of the owner of the bar next door.
“I don’t think it’s a good idea to be putting up curtains when people are outside,” she said.
A City of Victoria spokesperson said they were working on a new colour scheme and would be announcing more details about the curtains in the coming weeks.
