Currently the wonderful Seagrove Village Market is planning to relocate further north on 395. However, the proposed new restaurant has stirred controversy because the site backs right up to a residential neighborhood. Issues associated with coexistence of residents and restaurants are not unique to Seagrove Village Market. Anyone that lives next to a restaurant is aware of the noise, light and olfactory pollution is associated with such an enterprise. The noise is produced from routine activities such as car doors and alarms, food and beverage deliveries and early morning garbage pickup. Another noise pollution comes from high speed kitchen vents and massive cooling fans which can be on constantly. Tall light poles and car head lights can also trespass into residential areas. Current county regulations are inadequate to properly mitigate nuisances caused by restaurants. There are some easy fixes that can be required. For example there are commercially available acoustical panels that can be affordably installed around Acs and kitchen vents. There are also Sound walls available to place around parking areas. www.ailsoundwalls.com is one source of such commercially available products. Please let me know of any other sources . Lighting should also be required to be "dark sky" compliant . Such light fixtures are shielded to project light down onto parking lot and not into windows of surrounding homes. Installation of such structures would assist in mitigating restaurant nuisances and would facilitate better relations with residential neighbors.
