If the residents are so worried about them, Wrigley Field has only been there 100 years. I've lived by the Pacific West train line my whole life. Hell, every time I move, I move even closer to the tracks. Should I complain the trains are too noisy?
People move into the neighborhood understanding the agreement as it is, not as the Cubs want it to be. I'm sure if Pacific West wanted to run trains through your town at 4 AM blasting music at 200 decibels, while shooting fireworks, and shinging spotlights you wouldn't just shrug your shoulders and say, well, the tracks have always been there.
