Lawyers should be forced to provide hard evidence of any claims that they cite as reasons for denying people access to public/private land for benign social events. The idea that there might be some “noise” from a truck used for cooking is probably a lot less than the noise of a City vehicle digging up a street, or from a home rebuild. Yet, some “attorney” can wave around the word “noise” on a piece of paper without even so much as one actual reading to demonstrate that some noise baseline had been exceeded.
This sort of event might lead to a little littering, but as long as the event coordinators policed the area when the event was over—then that matter would be taken care of. Let’s hope that its coordinators will find some way to continue on—in spite of these particular “neighbors” (who will doubtless find ways to object in the future).
Perhaps they can relocate to the empty Mikis parking lot.
