A senior living facility and a dance club are across the street from each other. Legal hilarity has ensued. I’m Amy E. Feldman.
Mirabella is a senior living facility in Arizona, and it’s across the street from Shady Park, which also sounds like an old age home but is, in fact, an electronic dance music club. The residents at the actual old age home have made several noise complaints to local police, which have investigated, but have issued no violations, in one case probably because the complainant’s husband was asleep when the police arrived, leading them to believe the noise wasn’t so terrible.
Noise complaints in an apartment are common between neighbors; but a public nuisance case is one in which many members of the public are affected by one landowner’s use of land, which substantially interferes with their right to enjoy their property. In a public nuisance case, the neighbors have to go to court to get an injunction to stop the nuisance. Mirabella’s case will be heard in February when they’ll have the chance to tell the Shady Park clubgoers to get off their lawn.
