See the building from outer space?” said Rob Anderson, of Rosemead. Anderson has been so bothered by the paint job that he’s started a one-man war, calling City Hall, the dealership and its parent company, Atlanta-based Manheim, to complain. “They just think I’m the nut from Rosemead,” Anderson said. Pullen maintains that only a few neighbors have complained over the years and that the dealer auction has a solid relationship in the city. ROSEMEAD – The 18-acre Los Angeles Dealer Auto Auction was the first of its kind in California, opening nearly 60 years ago. Through the decades, the auction has seen its share of changes and upgrades. Today, it offers weekly auctions – some that last until 2 a.m. – exclusively for automobile dealers. “Our motto is we are the first one in California, we’re the finest, and the we’re the friendliest,” said General Manager Ed Pullen. While some in the community value the auction’s history and continual good business, a handful of neighbors consider it a nuisance. “We are very appreciative of what the city allows us to do,” Pullen said. Former City Councilman Jay Imperial, who served on the dais for nearly 30 years, said the auction has a good reputation in the city. “They’ve done a lot of good things in the community,” he said, such as providing a consistent source of revenue. The auction also contributed to the community by leasing land for $1 a year to the former Boys and Girls Club building at 7850 Garvey Ave. The most common complaint the city has received is about the increased traffic during auction hours, said Brian Saeki, redevelopment administrator. Jesse Duff, interim community development director, said the city recently required the auction to make some upgrades, including adding new windows. The dealer auction also installed a new canopy. Duff said code does not restrict the paint color for the facility. jennifer.mclain@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2477160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
