Pompano Beach Blvd. resident Steven Rosenberg says he was awakened by the sound of construction equipment at 6:54 this morning and he was none too happy about it.

He took to Facebook to let everyone know just how upset he was. He even shot video of workers firing up their cranes next to  the Pompano Beach Pier.

Surprisingly, some neighbors/Facebook posters were not sympathetic stating that there was nothing wrong with a 7 am start time.  Others however agreed with Rosenberg, including Barbara Gordon who stated “A city person whom I respect told me a year ago to expect the next 5 years to be hell.”  City officials would disagree with this and have been making efforts to communicate with and meet needs of the residents.

By the way, Rosenberg says he has checked with the city and was told that construction is not supposed to start until 8:00 in the morning.  On a bright note, Rosenberg says he was able to enjoy the beautiful sunrise that happened over Pompano Beach and he posted a picture of it on his Facebook page.  Always a silver lining:)

Resident Dominic Pregi thought 8:00 am was a reasonable start time.  Facebook poster  John Trainor felt “9:00 am is reasonable.”

So, what do you think?  Is 6:54 (or 7 am) a reasonable start time?  We’d love to hear your thoughts.

For good and bad, there is definitely a lot of construction going on in the area.  In fact, we just posted an update on the Pompano Beach beach area construction a few days ago- read it here.  Pompano! Magazine and our website, pointpubs.com will continue to provide you with ongoing coverage of all that is taking place in the area, so keep checking back for the latest.
