BRECKENRIDGE – The recently installed clock at the Village at Breckenridge has drawn ire from local residents who say its four illuminated faces are too bright.

“People hate it,” Town Councilman Jeffrey Bergeron said Wednesday. “It’s keeping people awake, and it’s annoying.”

A Village Homeowner’s Association representative addressed concerns at this week’s Breckenridge Town Council meeting. He said the HOA is working with the manufacturer to examine options for making the clock less bright.

Councilman Peter Joyce said after the meeting that “there seemed to be a high degree of willingness to work” on the issue.

“There have been a handful of people who have asked me about it,” he said.

The clock tower is part of an $18 million renovation of the Village to be complete by Dec. 15. The clock faces were manufactured by Electric Time in Boston, which also produced New York City’s Rockefeller Center Tower Clock in the late 1920s.
