Noise from Caruso’s Village Affects Neighbors
For weeks, residents who live around Palisades Village have lodged complaints to both Caruso management and the L.A. Police Department about amplified music projecting from the property into the neighborhood.
Municipal Code 115.02 prohibits amplified music within 500 feet of a residential zone.
Caruso has sidestepped residents’ complaints by telling them he is supporting nonprofit organizations with concerts and invitation-only gatherings at the Park, the small green space between the Draycott and Blue Ribbon Sushi, along Monument.
“These nonprofit events are a red-herring,” a resident told Circling the News. “They are simply diverting attention from the real issues.” She maintains the events are a marketing effort by Caruso to attract people to his project’s stores and restaurants.
Other residents, who have tested the decibels of the music and found it is above the legal limit, say that amplified music imposes an undue burden on the residential neighborhood, which is why it is not permitted by law.
Alphabet Street residents are concerned that Caruso’s influence at City Hall and on the Palisades Community Council will allow Caruso to continue to negatively impact the quality of life of local residents, by not following the law regarding amplified music.
