Pisani"s Outdoor Rink Met With Criticism

from the CP at Castanet,

A former Edmonton Oiler’s plan to build a permanent hockey rink isn’t going over well with some of his neighbours in a subdivision northwest of Edmonton.

Some residents of Riverstone Pointe, north of St. Albert, have taken their concerns about Fernando Pisani’s rink to the Sturgeon County subdivision and development appeal board.

Don McGeachy, a county councillor who sits on the appeal board, says he’s never seen a complaint like this before.

McGeachy says several of the neighbours have had backyard rinks before with no complaints, but adds those have been temporary.

Some neighbours say the 15 metre by 27 metre rinkabout half the size of an NHL one,”- will create a noise problem and lighting will interfere with privacy late at night.

The rink will have permanent boards, Plexiglas ends and six three-metre tall light standards.
