I never expected that the operation of a business in the city would have such a direct effect on the quality of life in a neighborhood. I enjoy living in a community where neighbors put out watch for children playing signs. I want to live in a community where neighbors respected each other's privacy and quality of life.
The nightclub that exists with its million-dollar sound system and its all-star music jams is either a function of a failed business plan for a high end restaurant or a duping of the community to what type of business was to exist. It is hard to believe that other restaurateurs and hotels have not seized the opportunity to serve the late night meals. Surely this could not be just a ruse to keep the nightclub open later to serve more alcohol?
The problems that arise out of a nightclub being placed adjacent to a residential neighborhood are not unique to Laguna Beach. Nor are they not to be expected. They are only amplified by the significant inadequate onsite parking of the location.
