A volleyball game seems innocent enough, until it effects a neighborhood. In Danbury on Tuesday night, Pleasant Street neighbors told the City Council one such game brought cars blocking the street and there was even a hot dog vendor. Resident Nick Marino says a fire truck wouldn't have been able to fit down the road if needed.
The next day, the head of the Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team met with the property owner to tell him about illegal parking and to get rid of the speakers. Sean Stillman will be at Pleasant Street Sunday to see if a similar game is held.
Stillman says he hasn't received complaints about this property in about two years.
There isn't an ordinance about continual large get togethers on private property that would shut down these gatherings, popular in the Ecuadorian community. But several years ago, the Mayor tried to implement one, which led to a national spotlight on Danbury and immigration reform.
