Noise-Study-Sherbeck-Field-Improvements
Expensive sound study conducted by Fullerton College- very conservative noise predictions for sounds that will be generated from Fullerton College’s Sherbeck Field. If you truly believe a public address system blaring and a crowd of 4,500 screaming and cheering fans only generates 75 decibels on the field, we have a bridge to sell you.

Write why you oppose such a project- whether it’s noise, light pollution, traffic, loitering (before and after games/practices), crime, etc. Also mention there are 2 perfectly good + usable stadiums (FUHS and CSUF) that are both available for use by Fullerton College. This stadium at Fullerton College is nothing but a feather in the college’s cap. This is not a ‘nighttime classroom’, like the college wants you to think (giving them exemptions from CEQA law, and local noise ordinances). This is a full-blown stadium that will be used to its fullest and maximum rental potential!

Think of your children sleeping when the college turns on the 80,000 watts of LED lights and opens the stadium to any school or organization (Hope International, Rosary H.S., etc.) who will begin sporting practice at 6 a.m.

 Is this the best use of taxpayer money? What happened to the Veteran’s Center that the college promised in the Measure J literature?

Your neighborhood’s peace and quiet will be forever ruined by the installation of a stadium at Fullerton College’s Sherbeck Field. This is fact, and we must fight to keep the college from building this project- whatever the cost.

Remember that the field’s very own namesake coach Hal Sherbeck did not even want a football stadium at Fullerton College, because he (coach Sherbeck) knew how much a stadium would negatively impact and ruin the peace and quiet of the adjacent neighborhood.

Majority of City Council Applicants Reject Fullerton College Stadium Idea

A recent public forum for an open seat on the Fullerton City Council revealed that over 90% of the candidates oppose a stadium at Fullerton College (forward video to 1:40:30 for responses), or click HERE to read the transcript.

The majority of candidates believe the $10.1 Million Fullerton District Stadium can and should be shared between the two schools. It is the best thing for the community. Fullerton College is a community college after all. It’s finally time the college works together with the high school and community of Fullerton to make the District Stadium FC’s home field for football and soccer matches.

This would best serve the community in every possible way.

A quick reminder that the administration of Fullerton College has now spent $923,755 in consultation fees alone to bring this stadium and other taxpayer bond-projects to life. Why is the stadium so important to the college when the field’s own namesake Hal Sherbeck knew a stadium at Fullerton College would cause undue noise, traffic and hardship to the adjacent quiet neighborhoods. Please help put an end to this madness. Contact Us Today

Fullerton College Awarded $150,000 for Sherbeck Field EIR Amendment

FJC Vice President Rodrigo (Rod) Garcia answers questions from Trustee Ed Lopez regarding why the college needs for more money to complete the EIR.

On Tuesday, October 9, 2018, the NOCCCD board of trustees voted 6-1 in favor of awarding Fullerton College an additional $150,000 to complete their EIR for the Sherbeck Field Improvements project. This now brings the total to $331,190 in fees for consultation and reports to bring a stadium to Fullerton College.
