If I lived around there, I'd want it to be voted down too by the planning commissions. Weddings (and their celebratory appendages) can be one of the noisiest, volitile, and disruptive kinds of parties/events.
They sure can be. I saw the movie, "Bridesmaids".
We have a big party house 7413 Hughes Rd on the Frwy. I hope people have enough sense to get down to City Hall and say NO to the Party House.... Weddings are Loud and Late. Some of the Music is just awful. And the owners don't usally hang out to keep them quite.
I really wish people had more common sense. This will NOT be a party house or a place to arrive by and dock boats or hold "motorcycle rallies". Apparently, y'all haven't been to a high- end wedding/ reception. The venue will mostly hold weddings/ receptions with maybe a few corporate events, with such a price tag most would reserve such an expense for a once in a lifetime event. this will not be scene from a movie with hundreds of people stomppin in, in their trucks with people piling out and kegs of beer flying.The land where this venue will be built is heavily wooded and 7 acres! I hope people can comprehend the amount of space this is. with the comments below, y'all must not have read or researched this topic. It is NOT a "party house". and it couldnt be too loud or late hours due to the city ordinances that will be strictly adhered to. Yes, the owner, wedding coordinator, security and parking staff will be on site at EVERY event until the last person leaves and all clean up crews have finished their duties; hence "high- end venue". Yes, by all means, please compare this topic to the MOVIE "bridesmaids", that seems very logical. This type of facility would be great for the City of Dickinson. It would bring in revenue for the "small" businesses, raise property values and bring in visitors from all over to see our cute little town..just to name a few. This comment doesnt even touch on most of what i have to say, like the romors going around and backstabbing neighbors. I completely understand peoples concerns fully and expect the owner to fulfil what she says with insulation and sound proofing. I have a feeing that if this whole process wasn't necessary and the barn was already built and in business the neighbors who are against this wouldn't even know or have anything to complain abaout. I truly hope people think about this over and over again. It would be an asset to the city.

Well, that's the beauty of democracy, commissioners' court, and planning commisions. All sides (pro and con) present their issues, and a decision is made.
If it's allowed and the land's use is eventually executed toward the wedding venues, then the adjoining residents can either put up with it or move to desolate Montana. All I know is that I can't blame residents for wanting to preserve their peace and quiet. After all, there's many dance halls, reception halls and the like that attract big family crowds. Often, we hear in the news of a wedding party getting out of hand. It's not like other residents would be saying things like, "Oh, great. I've always wanted a wedding reception ballroom venue and barbecue party facility arena next to me." The noise and traffic would be inevitable.
But, at least it won't be like having a kennel or a firing range in close proximity. So, in conclusion, y'all have your work cut out for you: To convince the neighbors that the cons (noise, traffic) don't outweigh the pros (whatever they may be). I'm not not sure what would be "in" it for the neighbors. In other words, there doesn't seem to be too many "pros" for them.
If the city sets rules in line with what the owner says in her own words....Millstid said she is trying to be respectful of the residents around her. She said she plans to add insulation to the building to reduce noise, and all events and receptions would be held inside the building...then it's a better council than Galveston's.
If yon ever issued any permits for business because of fear of noise , traffic ext. no businesses would ever be built.

What you say definitely rings true. However, it differs between rural-ish sections of winding road outside of Dickinson and established urban non-zoned type places in either Galveston, Houston, or other urban area.
Folks in the urban areas are already used to businesses next to their residences, as it's already an urban field, so to speak.
I think of this stretch of area this story pertains as quite different. Even so, I wish the business folks the best of luck. Sounds like they have a battle.
