Management at the Journey Inn wants the City of Vernon to tackle noise from neighbouring businesses.

Vernon council asked to help reduce noise for business

Journey Inn tells politicians that guests are not coming back because of noise from other merchants

A Vernon businessman is demanding action from city hall.

Ed Buie, general manager of the Journey Inn on 28th Avenue, told city council Tuesday that early morning noise from adjacent businesses is negatively impacting his revenue.

“I’ve had  countless guests say they won’t be back because of the noise,” he said of the motel, which has been downtown for 51 years.

Among the concerns are music from drinking establishments and other businesses doing work in their parking lots during the time when his guests are sleeping.

“I am not trying to limit their hours or restrict business but I want them to assure they are good neighbours,” he said.
