The Oak Bluffs selectmen this week approved an entertainment license for The Barn Bowl and Bistro, and granted an exception to a policy of prohibiting construction in the business district after June 1.

The entertainment license allows the new bowling facility to operate foosball, shuffleboard, air hockey and ping pong, and show videos. The license had been previously delayed over noise complaints from the bowling alley's neighbors.

Building inspector Mark Barbadoro told the board Tuesday that extensive sound proofing required as a condition of permitting has been completed, and sound tests showed the noise level is well below the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection standard for nuisance noise, which is 10 decibels louder than ambient sound.

Selectman Gail Barmakian said the board is still getting complaints from at least one neighbor about the sound of bowling inside the building.

Developer Sam Dunn asked to continue work on painting and trim work until June 30. Selectmen opted instead to grant a policy exception until their next meeting, June 23. Work must be done between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., and no construction is allowed on the weekends.

In other action, selectmen also were officially invited, along with the public, to the opening ceremony for a new trail system at Sailing Camp Park, funded through Community Preservation Act funds.

Conservation agent Liz Durkee said the new trails open up a large area of town conservation land that, until now, was not accessible.

“We now have a trail system,” Ms. Durkee said. “It’s a nice circular walk. There are two new scenic overlooks and two new parking areas.” The trails are accessible to people using wheelchairs. The official grand opening is Sunday, June 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., but the trails are open now from dawn to dusk.

Also Tuesday, selectmen granted two new taxi licenses to Your Taxi. Owner Diane Habekost will increase her fleet from six to eight vehicles.

They granted a license to MV Water Taxi, to operate a boat carrying passengers from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown.

Selectmen adjusted traffic regulations to prohibit parking on the west side of Uncas avenue, except for spaces directly in front of the Barn Bowl and Bistro. Parking will be allowed on the east side of the narrow street.

In his report to selectmen, town administrator Robert Whritenour said the town’s financial targets are on track, with just a few weeks left in the fiscal year, but weather could affect local revenue.

“We’re 5.9 per cent over what we collected last year, and last year was a world record for the town,” Mr. Whritenour said.

He also reported that the project to dredge Little Bridge and renourish town beaches is nearly complete, and announced a contract has been signed to begin a $6 million project to repair and rebuild the seawall and boardwalk along Sea View avenue. The project is funded mostly by state grants.
