Yorkville – Chapin School Ignores Neighbors’ Pleas to Limit Late Night Work, Locals Say

(DNAINFO)  Shaye Weaver | April 29, 2016 — Residents had hoped to get a compromise from the school but were disappointed, they say.

Neighbors frustrated by constant noise from construction at the Chapin School tried to halt plans for further late night and weekend work, but their pleas were rejected by school officials.

Residents flooded the school during a public meeting on Tuesday night, demanding that the school refrain from work in the evenings and on Sundays, according to Lisa Paule who helps lead Serene Green, a group of locals who are fighting for quality of life on the block.

“Seven days a week is not acceptable. We just don’t want it,” she told DNAinfo New York on Thursday.

Despite the group’s opposition during the meeting, it became clear that the school will not change its plans.

A spokeswoman for the school said that the hours that were presented “are those we will be seeking.”
