STOP THE EXCESSIVE NOISE FROM ZAROO CAR WASH (West Floral Park, Santa Ana.)

This petition had 164 supporters


In May 2017, the City of Santa Ana (the City) approved the opening of Zaroo Car Wash (Zaroo) at the corner of Baker St. and 17th St, adjoining the West Floral Park neighborhood. Immediately upon Zaroo's opening, the noise from newly installed and high-powered blowers and 42 high-powered vacuums significantly and detrimentally affected the solitude that surrounding neighbors had previously enjoyed.  The noise has invaded people’s homes they invested in or leased when no such intrusive noises existed before.

For many years a hand-dry car wash operated at the same location as Zaroo without any issues for surrounding neighbors. It then closed and the City permitted Zaroo to build and open a new “self-serve” carwash that was fundamentally different in character from the prior car wash. However, the City did so without notice to the surrounding neighbors.  Surrounding neighbors then were never given an opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns regarding the new operation and addition of blowers and vacuums.

Our homes are our sanctuary. When residents come home from a busy day they are comforted by its familiarity, tranquility and sense of peace.  In May 2017, that peace and quiet was taken away from the neighbors adjoining Zaroo. The noises from Zaroo invade neighbors’ gardens, patios, family time, outdoor entertaining and at times even penetrates closed doors and windows. The excessive noise level is also having a negative influence on property values and there is no end in sight.

THIS MUST END AND OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS MUST ACT TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE THE QUIET ENJOYMENT OF THE RESIDENTS ADJOINING ZAROO!

Please sign our petition to help our voices be heard by the City of Santa Ana City Council.  Our focus is to restore the peaceful enjoyment of neighbors’ homes by significantly reducing the noise originating from the Zaroo Car Wash.
