Woodstock 50 Reapplies Again to Hold Event in Vernon:

 

Despite stating earlier this week that they would not reapply to hold their event in Vernon, Woodstock 50 promoters have, in fact, now submitted a third application to stage the festival there.  Two previous applications were denied by the town’s Codes Department and Planning Board due to various concerns regarding safety and traffic, as well as the fact the applications fell outside the 120-day timeline before the event.  In response, the Oneida County Sheriff commented on Facebook that his concerns remain the same as they were when the previous applications were denied and said there’s “no practical or logistical possibility that this event could occur without significant risk to public safety.”  At this time, it is unknown what the timeline is for the town to respond to this latest application, or even what was included in it.
