Rob Zombie Files Noise Complaint With City Over Skate Park
Rob Zombie and his wife have complained to the Litchfield County town of Woodbury that the park, which opened near their home in April, makes so much noise that it should be moved.
The town is looking into moving the park, but is also trying to minimize the noise by enclosing the sides of the metal skate ramps, stuffing the jumps with Styrofoam and putting up soundproofing fabric on a fence, said First Selectman Gerald Stomski. The skate park hours were also changed and it is closed on Sundays.
Stomski said the town is responding to the complaint from the Zombies as it would for any resident.
"We do know the Zombies, on a side note, and they are just normal people like anyone else in our town," Stomski said. About 10,000 people live in the well-to-do small town nestled in Litchfield Hills, known for antiquing.
Rob Zombie commented via facebook stating "Some really crazy articles have popped up making claims about 'hating skaters' and 'hating children,'" he wrote. "There is a simple matter going on in which we are trying to find a solution that will make EVERYBODY happy."
