Party venue, timing inappropriate

“You have to be kidding!” That is a cleaned-up version of what neighbors were saying the morning after a party at Northstar Park.

Last week, neighbors of the park received a notice of permit application from the city. It said that HM.CLUSE was going to have a “corporate convention/BBQ” from 6 to 10 p.m. on Aug. 26 for 250 people. The phone number on the permit was from Stockton. There would be a barbecue, soccer games, DJ … maybe the city did not realize that the 26th was a Monday night. A school night.

The Northstar Park was designed with parking, bathrooms, etc., at the east end of the park so that events are not adjacent to any homes. I guess whoever dealt with the people putting on the event did not tell them where to set up the tents, sound system, bouncy houses, etc.

They were not at the east end; they were right up against our backyard fences. Generators and the machine that keeps pumping air into the bouncy houses were right next to the fence and were very loud and smelled of fuel vapors. Our youngest goes to bed at 7:30 and the two older are in bed at 8 p.m. since they have school the next morning.

There were portable toilets in the small overflow parking lot on Oriole Avenue and the lot was tied up all day Monday. Why would the city allow 250 people party on a weeknight?

A friend more than a block away could hear the mayor being introduced and saying how wonderful the parks are. The parks are wonderful but not when those living next to them have to listen to loud music, etc., on a work/school night until 10 p.m. We thought we would all be able to get to sleep when the people left at 10 p.m. but no. The tents, tables, chairs and all the other stuff had to be packed up and moved out.

In the future, maybe the city could permit parties at the east end of the park, not backed up to the homes. Use the park the way it was designed.
