Restaurants may be noisy, and the patrons leaving may make noise. But a bigger problem for some Corona del Mar residents lately has been the noise created by employees as they leave for the night, according to e-mails and complaints sent to Newport Beach Mayor Pro Tem Nancy Gardner.
Gardner on Thursday asked if the Corona del Mar Business Improvement District board would send a letter to restaurants in the village, telling them to remind workers to be mindful of neighbors as they leave work after evening shifts.
"I get a lot of complaints," Gardner told the board at its monthly meeting. "One thing that would be very simple and that you could very easily take control of is asking employees to be quiet at night. Let's not antagonize the residents. A letter to businesses reminding them would be very helpful."
