Noise, Light Pollution & Traffic a Certainty for Raymond Hills Neighborhood

Fullerton College’s Sherbeck Field Stadium project poses grave threat of permanent increase in light pollution, traffic and revelers to very quiet neighborhood

WHAT DID YOU SAY??? What about the noise? Some attendees at the meeting were concerned about light pollution. Others traffic and still others the NOISE:

On Thursday, November 17, 2016 members of the public, college officials and Jeffrey P. Brown, elected NOCCCD official for district 6, listen to homeowners and neighbors’ concerns about the definite increase in noise, light pollution and traffic a 4500 lighted stadium will bring to the Raymond Hills Neighborhood area of Fullerton.

Sherbeck Stadium Threatens Raymond Hills Neighborhood Peace & Quiet

sherbeck-field-toward-raymond-hills-neighborhood
Clearly these neighbors do not want a noisy stadium in their backyards…

Molly McClanahan and the trustees of the North Orange County Community College District want to ruin the Raymond Hills neighborhood of Fullerton with a stadium that is simply not needed. There is another stadium undergoing modern renovation less than 2 blocks away at Fullerton Union High School. There is also another football stadium that was built for a team that does not exist at CSUF. We encourage you to work together with with the FJUHSD and CSUF and use either of those fields for your six home games

We in the neighborhood have worked hard for our homes and appreciate the quiet we have in our neighborhood. With a stadium as Sherbeck Field at Fullerton College, we the residents of the neighborhood all those little arrows are pointing at all have to live with the light, noise, traffic, trash, increased crime and loitering. This stadium is absolutely not needed and the taxpayer money that is being used for this should be spent elsewhere.

With another field so close, the greedy and financially irresponsible trustees of the NOCCCD still want to put a massive 4500 seat stadium at FJC and ruin an entire neighborhood when they can use the one at Fullerton High School 1000′ away. Work together with the FJUHSD.

 

Where is the Transparency?

Where is the openness and transparency about the community meetings regarding the Fullerton College Sherbeck Field Stadium expansion plans? Did you mail notices out to all the residences regarding these community meetings within a one mile radius? A 1/4 mile radius even? How was the public notified of these meetings?

The trustees of the NOCCCD will do what they want unless we tell them no. Enough hiding the truth. We, those that will be most affected by an unneeded and noisy stadium want and demand answers from you, FJC and President Schulz. There are concept renderings of everything but the stadium- why is that? The affected and surrounding neighbors and homeowners would love some honesty for once from the NOCCCD trustees. Especially you Ms. McClanahan- you helped get the field built at CSUF using Redevelopment funds, and now you want another stadium? We say enough is enough. No more football stadiums!

No Fullerton College Stadium!

This is just the beginning of our fight Molly McClanahan.

Six-100′ tall light towers will ruin the livelihoods and property values of the adjacent neighborhood. This football stadium at Sherbeck Field is completely unnecessary and efforts should be made to jointly work with the FJUHSD to use the stadium at Fullerton High which is already built and will get the same upgrades at the proposed stadium.


Ms. McClanahan~ You were recalled from the Fullerton City Council on June 7, 1994 for a citywide tax nobody wanted. Nobody who lives nearby and will be affected by this stadium on a daily basis wants it built…

We will have you recalled from the Board of Trustees of the NOCCCD if you vote for this project. We, the neighbors of Raymond Hills have united and vehemently oppose an unnecessary football stadium at Fullerton College with six- 100′ light towers, constant noise and light pollution, and lower quality of life and property values for the adjacent neighborhoods. It has been proposed that you and the FJUHSD Trustees come to a joint use agreement with the High School stadium at Fullerton High that is 1/3 larger and will have the same amenities as the proposed FJC stadium not 2 blocks away. This project at Fullerton College is completely unnecessary. By the way, where are you going to park 2,000+ cars for a full event at the stadium? And will you charge for event parking?
