The Town and the new West Seven nightclub in Norval (formerly Nashville North) have signed an agreement designed to protect the village residents from noise, vandalism and littering. Due to the past history of other operations at this location, the Town is requiring West Seven to enter an agreement: · to comply with all town bylaws, including noise, property standards, community standards, building, licensing, littering and parking, as well provincial legislation related to the Building Code Act and Fire Protection and Prevention Act. · to address complaints and concerns in a timely manner · to invite the Town to participate and provide feedback related to complaints or concerns · to work with the Town in addressing the issues surrounding the provision of transportation of patrons at closing. The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario will be requested to add a condition to West Seven's licence requiring compliance with the Town agreement. AGCO has agreed to do that. Daniel Biagioni, general manager of West Seven, told Halton Hills council at last week's meeting, his club is 100 per cent satisfied with the Town requirements. "All we ask if there are concerns from the community or council, please don't hesitate to call us and let us know. So we can direct the appropriate people that are in place to rectify the situations that are occurring," he said. Biagioni brought only one issue to the notice of councillors: on the first weekend of opening, local taxi companies refused to pick up passengers and the club was forced to call cabbies from Brampton. Town Clerk Karen Landry, who is in charge of taxi licensing, said she would look into the matter. This week is the official opening week of the night club. Biagioni, who managed Club 2000 and Riverside Spa from 1989 to 1994, said West Seven has hired approximately 40 staff from Halton Hills. More than 150 residents attended the West Seven open house last month. "Seven West staff members were overwhelmed with the outpouring of community support from our local residents," said Biagioni. "The staff and myself have made a commitment to the residents of Norval to help foster their sense of community." Seven West plans to participate in the Norval Community Association and in community events including upcoming Georgetown Homecoming, Norval founding anniversary and Lucy Maud Montgomery celebrations. Ward 2 Councillors Bryan Lewis and Clark Somerville congratulated Biagioni on his endeavour. "I offer my own congratulations in the manner you have conducted yourself and your employees," said Lewis, "in terms of putting (behind us) what was at times a negative experience. I speak on behalf of the residents we represent and say thank you." "It's been a great show of faith from Daniel and his team to get out and meet with the community and try to foster better relationships than what were there before," said Somerville.
