Byzantium 1 Nov 10, 2021 09:09 AM Multiple Subjects Fighting at Earl Warren Showgrounds Previously misposted to the wrong thread - duplicate: EWS is state owned property, teetering on bankruptcy, with a board of directors unconnected to the immediate neighborhood. Only the Calif Highway Patrol has jurisdiction over the property. Quick and dirty rentals with massive sound amplification are revenue raisers for them, knowing they are totally exempt from any local sound ordinances. EWS is part of the state fairgrounds operation and under the control of our local elected state representatives (Limon/Bennett) who have ignored all noise complaints for years. Noise from these events vibrate windows miles away. First step - no more amplified music. Acoustic sounds only. Support these public service venues by creating funding endowments with state tax revenue, so they don't have to resort to being bad neighbors just to make ends meet. EWS showgrounds has public value and have served as important evacuation centers nearly annually - most recently for animals during the Alisal Fire. But their grotesquely loud, and now violent concerts must cease.
