On July 30, 2019, Neighborhood Services staff reviewed the evidence collected on the aforementioned inspections with the Prosecution Division of the City Attorney’s Office. Upon conclusion of this meeting, the Prosecution Division did not feel there was sufficient evidence to warrant prosecution at this time.Wysocki also advised the city hasn't closed the case, however, and more testing will be conducted in September, after 3G Venture owner, John Chen, finishes installing other devices to muffle the sound.
The City's decision not to prosecute was not surprising. It was a predictable volley and I expected as much. Regardless, it was a disappointing blow and I feel the City of Colorado Springs has let the neighborhood of Chelsea Glen down tremendously. Mr. Chen's business continues to violate noise ordinances during nighttime hours almost 100% of the time, according to my readings. Mr. Chen has played the City for about a year, without incurring consequences for his actions. However, the residents of Chelsea Glen will keep fighting this until he is in compliance with the law. I suspect that there is a lot more to this case than meets the eye.
