The newly formed No Noise in Our Neighborhoods Coalition is currently considering approaches to curtailing the ever-expanding negative environmental, social and financial impacts related to the expanded use of Palisades Charter High School facilities, particularly it's rental to outside entities, enlarged marching band and new aquatics center.
Despite a recent meeting between PaliHi administrators, a mediator, residents and a representative from CD11, organizers say that PaliHi administrators have not implemented meaningful, measurable improvements in their sound and light management system. Their commitment to making changes is being questioned.
The No Noise in Our Neighborhoods Coalition intends to explore all legal means in it’s attempt to restore tranquility to Pacific Palisades neighborhoods. Their primary and long-term goal is to reach formal agreements with PahiHi that will commit PaliHi to managing their facilities in a manner that will restore and maintain the historic tranquility that has exemplified life in Palisades neighborhoods.
The group’s immediate goal is to stop the loud drumming, which regularly takes place from 2:30 to 5:30 each weekday afternoon, and sometimes on Saturdays. It’s booming, penetrating sound echoes loudly throughout the community’s many neighborhoods, canyons, mountains and The Commercial Village.
