Very Simple. The people that pay the bills for City Place should call the shots. The cost of living in city place is very high and requires a professional income. Professionals are normally working long hours to pay for their City Place lifestyle. The issue is that the noise is coming from those that do not respect the people that are paying for the upkeep. Personally, when I go out into City Place and have to deal with the people from the projects, it is almost enough for me to SELL and move out. If all professionals SELL and move out, it will become what it was before people like me invested so much money to improve WPB. It will be a drug infested ghetto again. Money talks people! You can't affort to buy it, you can't party with it. The Mayor needs to pull a tax roll and only listen to those whom are paying!!!!!
Downtown was marked to people as a fun spot people bought condos and moved there for that if it's too loud u need to move out! Move out the night life and the city will suffer more than it is now
Not surprised @ most of the comments--PBch county encourages FUN FUN FUN--loud people w/little or no manners including lack of consideration for other people. The mayor should clamp down --post haste. It's all about ME in this town--the lack of civility is border line animalistic--shame on America.
Harlan:Surely you jest. Perhaps you are nescient of the fact that the condo you procured in a downtown metropolitan breadth would not be as silent as your large, well insulated abode on the countryside. You should possibly reassess your living arrangements as I can inform you for a fact that the uproariousness that permeates the burghal you dwell in is not going to withdraw at any moment in the near or distant future. I do however, wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavors. You tool.
The Public is entitled to the benefits of the LAW, the zoning, and noise ordinances are the LAW and ought to be enforced. Sunfest and the other orchestral and band events usually end lawfully at 10PM; HOWEVER Rocco's and Reef RD. and World of Beers and Off the Hookah, and The numerous Pizza stores and Dr. Feel Goods, Grease and Roxy's GO and GO until The bars shut down the flow of Alcohol at 3-4 AM not just on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, but EVERY night! to the foul mouths and critics of noise abatement enforcement! If you don't live around the area, and think those of us who live here are privileged spoil sports, I wish you and your narrow-minded solipsistic brains flost away on your alcoholic and drug induced binge life; a short duration.
Ridiculous!!! It's only obvious if you live in a downtown area that a certain noise level is going to go with it, you should have though about before you moved in. That's like someone in loxahatee complaining about the chickens ! Lol Go back north snowbirds and as for the mayor she should keep the people here content and remember when she was young , enough said !
The Mayor and some city commissioners are certainly trying to change downtown by altering, or even eliminating, Sunfest. We have started a grass roots campaign to urge city leaders to leave Sunfest alone.

When the hood rat yarnheads come out of the woodwork, there gonna wreck some stuff. What do you expect, that's what they do. And another thing, if it's too loud, your too old!! Rock on Kenny G!!
Left to their own devices, those "elements" destroy property and increase crime. A compromise must be reached. I do think if you buy a condo downtown that you should expect noise, however.
where else can i dirty dude like me score some one nighters?!?!? R.I.P. Club Safari the hoes and pimps of PBC will miss you :.^(
i wish these snow bird turds that complain would stay away from south florida and stay up north permanent. all they do is come down here and nag about how much better it is in the northeast.what next? tear down the nice waterfront and bring in a waterfront century village? i hope youre reading these posts you pathetic mayor
I would think that if you bought a place downtown in a city you would have to expect noise! Otherwise, go live in the suburbs or the acreage! I cannot believe the Mayor would even entertain the suggestion.
You mean to tell me that when you buy a condo in,and around downtown that you don't possibly think you will have any event noise?? They have had events downtown now for how many years??? It is a terrible excuse to say you only want a certain kind of crowd/ pepole at the downtown events. Ummm let's see. Oh ya. That's racist! Disgusting that the mayor has the gall to make a statement like that. I would never vote for such a city leader again. Let's turn downtown into the island of Palm Beach and then not be able to do anything fun. Sad.
Worst Mayor ever. One term and done. She is bad for our city and lacks good judgement. As usual she is wrong on many of her stances. Would she prefer going back to the days not too many years back when downtown was quieter, few quality businesses existed and was not an enjoyable entertainment destination in the County? She is wrong here just like she is wrong on her stance against the SR 7 road extension.
They built the downtown area for entertainment. The people who moved into the condos and apartments near the waterfront should have fully known what they were getting into when they moved in. It's pretty ironic that the only night the mayor commented on was the night the hip hop acts performed. She didn't like the crowd that attended. Sounds like racisism to me.
Exactly which "element" the mayor was referring to when she made that statement leaves me lost. Was it the people of all races enjoying a show together? Was it the people that were bottlenecked at the end of the show and waited patiently and didn't become agitated (though a gate did get crashed, it wasn't done out of anger, just frustration - people were hungry)? Was it the violent drunks passing out and getting in fights? Oh. Sorry. Couldn't be them. That was reserved for the other nights...Please refrain from using my name. Thank you and please, pursue this story. It means a lot to our people, our merchants, and of course, the city.
