I was told secondhand by a resident that a police officer later said that the block party preparation was approved from 5 am on, but the police didn't know there would be noisy equipment. Either way, the neighbors weren't told.
(The 16-foot wall is supposed to protect neighbors from construction noise. Had the project been built at a somewhat smaller scale, a regular 8-foot wall would suffice.)
