Notice to Residents
Dear Residents:

As a member of the Town and Gown committee, Wilfrid Laurier is committed to working with our neighbours to ensure a desired quality of life is maintained. As part of that commitment, we strive to ensure appropriate noise by-law exemptions are in place for events that may disrupt or disturb our neighbours. Unfortunately, events are sometimes scheduled within a time frame that doesn’t permit this.

I am writing today to make you aware of one such event. On Thursday, September 28, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Waterloo Collegiate Institute and Bluevale Collegiate Institute will be playing their annual “Battle of Waterloo” football game. Approximately 2,000 people are expected to attend this event and amplified music will be used briefly during a short dance team performance. During the game, the public address system will be used, however, the sound level will be set at the level agreed upon by the Town and Gown subcommittee.

In the absence of a noise by-law exemption, we are making every effort to make neighbouring residents aware of this event. An ad will be placed in the Waterloo Chronicle this Wednesday, September 27, and we are hand delivering this letter to every household within a 120 metre radius of the stadium.

I want to assure you that Wilfrid Laurier remains committed to working with our neighbours. We take the conditions set out in our Town and Gown agreement seriously, and strive to follow the regulatory by-laws of the City of Waterloo in all circumstances. When unable to do so, however, we will do everything in our power to communicate any exceptions to you in a timely manner.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this event or the content of this letter, please do not hesitate to contact me. If there the noise levels are unacceptable during this event, please call the Waterloo Regional Police at 519-653-7700 immediately and ask for Dispatch.

Respectfully yours,


PETER BAXTER, M.A.
Director Athletics and Recreation
