GREG HARTON: The sound of music

It’s not always welcome, even in Fayetteville

When it comes to home buying and city planning, there's an adage that suggests "If you don't like the noise, don't move in next to an airport."

Correction

This column has been modified to eliminate a reference to noise complaints from a credit union. Gina Williams, CEO of the UARK Federal Credit Union in Fayetteville, said Monday her organization "has experienced no problem with ... noise levels" from JJ's Beer Garden and Brewing Co. at 3615 Steele Blvd. in Fayetteville and the business has gone above what most businesses would have to be good neighbors." In a June 11 column, Greg Harton referenced noise concerns from a credit union that were cited in a May 29 Fayetteville Planning Commission meeting, but those concerns were expressed in 2015 in anticipation of the restaurant/bar's operation. Williams said those issues never developed and credited JJ's for working to address any credit union concerns.
