Meadow Creek Park Resident Complaints Go Silent

The change of season means less park goers, and for residents near Monterey’s Meadow Creek Park, that means less noise after hours.

Residents first voiced concerns last summer of noisy late night traffic as the park remains open 24/7. Police Chief Bill Randolph said since then, he has not received any complaints after increasing patrols for the park.

“As far as I know, we have not had any more calls from up there at Meadow Creek from the residents,” Randolph said. “I do not know if it is that (increased patrols), or it’s the cold weather. Something evidently has been a deterrent.”

Randolph said some on the Board of Alderman want to reevaluate the park’s hours in the coming months. The 7-1 decision in favor of all day access was made in July with the idea to allow fishing at all times.

“It is 24/7 as of right now,” Randolph said. “But, I do know that at the last meeting they brought it up again. They said they were going to bring that up for discussion in the next weeks or months.”

The city received about 30 noise complaints calls that summer, according to former Mayor Bill Wiggins.
