I am writing this letter to address a reoccurring problem that has been plaguing our area of Costa Mesa for the past year. Repeated violations of the city noise ordinance have been an issue we have had to endure. I believe this is in part due to failure of enforcement by proper officials.
These violations have come in various forms. For example, my wife and I live directly across from Mesa Restaurant, which turns into a nightclub every Monday through Thursday. The constant thumping of music begins at 9 p.m. and runs its course through midnight.
During that time, we are subjected to rattling windows and amateur singers trying desperately to do their best "American Idol" impersonations. On various nights, the Shark Club and The Huddle let out patrons around midnight to 1 a.m. They proceed to walk down Baker Street toward Mesa restaurant, yelling obscenities and causing disturbances to residents and their property along the way.
