Fullerton Council denies Roscoe’s appeal

Under the wise direction of newly elected Fullerton Mayor Don Bankhead, City Attorney Richard Jones instructed the other City Council Members to deny Roscoe’s Famous Deli owner Jack Franklin’s appeal of the Planning Commission’s denial of an application to maintain a bandstand for live and recorded amplified music outside. Councilperson Quirk said “I’ve never had one person come up to me” and complain about the loud music and that it can’t be that loud because she “cant hear it from [her] house” which is about a mile away. However, Mrs. Teti who lives next to Richman School some 3,000 feet away, told this reporter that she had spoken to Quirk on several occasions regarding her family’s years long plight of being  awoken between the hours of 10PM and 2AM by loud music and amplified background crowd noise emanating from Roscoe’s.

  1. Once again Fullerton’s incompetent planning staff completely screws something up with no accountability. The Director has the huevos to get up in front of the Council asking for more time to do proper noise analysis per CEQA! Why didn’t this idiot do it in the first place, before it went to the Planning Commision?

    And not one councilmember thinks anything is ass-backward.
    Something stinks in Downtown Fullerton and it isn’t just Florentine’s kitchen on fish night.

  2. Sounds like Quirk has some explaining to do.
