City officials this week got an earful from a group of local residents who said they are fed up with months of noise, dust and traffic associated with construction on the Walt Disney Co.'s massive creative campus.
At the City Council meeting on Tuesday, residents on the 1300 block of Truitt Street said they have asked Disney and city officials to ease the effects of construction on a new childcare facility being built a mere 30 feet from their homes.
City officials — who told the residents they had passed their concerns to Disney officials and were unaware they had not been resolved — agreed to set up a neighborhood meeting with all stakeholders to address the issues.
"Let's get some mitigation to this," Councilman John Drayman said. "I can't imagine what you're going through."
The residents cited constant beeping and other construction noise, in addition to dirt and dust, truck traffic and cramped parking. The worst, they said, included a week of earthquake-like conditions during demolition and dirt compactions that left cracks and other damage to their homes.
