Fore some, the first couple of concerts at Cascades Park sounded like music to their ears.

For others living near the park, it was a different story.

"Three hours of relentless pounding," described one neighbor of the music.

More than a dozen neighbors of Myers Park had a chance to 'sound off' at Wednesday's city commission meeting more than a week after the first weekend of concerts, including Valerie Jean Conner.

"There are going to continue to be problems until you find a way.. ...until you find a way to confine the sound," said Conner.

Being that the park has already hosted two concerts so far, both neighbors and city officials say there's still needs to be some bugs worked out. One of the solutions is possibly not hosting concerts on Sunday evenings.

"We'll only have up to 10 ticketed events per year which means 355 days we won't have that situation," said city commissioner Gil Ziffer. "I for one am fairly satisfied with where we are. There are some tweaks that we can do."

Residents did give some suggestions including finally setting a noise ordinance for future concerts.
