SYRACUSE — The lawsuit against Oakwood Resorts for excessive noise has been resolved. On April 6, Circuit Court Judge Michael Reed signed a consent judgement and injunction after Dr. Rex Parent, owner of Oakwood Resorts, and the plaintiffs, neighbors who live across Conklin Bay from the resort, entered into a confidential settlement agreement.
The court found the parties agreed the plaintiffs and their agents will not allow music to play ouside on the Oakwood property. During 2016, Oakwood will be allowed to have a limited number of events with outdoor music.
That number is limited to four weekday events and six weekend events with a disc jockey only. No live bands will be permitted to perform. The court designated weekends as Friday and Saturday.
Oakwood are to provide dates for these events to plaintiffs within 14 days of the execution of the settlement agreement. Beginning in 2017 and thereafter, defendants will not allow music to play outside the real estate. The injunction also details the decible level the music can be played at.
The injunction does not apply to Boat-In or the one or two philharmonic symphony performances played at Oakwood.
