The situation is improving with MTV filming the reality show “The Real World” on a quiet Bird Rock cul-de-sac, though there remains significant disruption that needs to be addressed, said a neighborhood resident.

Brandon Wander, who’s critical of the lack of notice the show’s producers gave residents when they rented an oceanfront La Jolla home for the summer-long TV shoot, said “things are settling into a range of experience that’s better than before the police were posted at the roundabout.” But he added, “Things aren’t perfect.”

Wander said drunken revelers — the most disconcerting element of MTV’s presence — “pretty much has been shut down at night.” But he said there is still a problem with traffic and outsiders wandering by to take photos.

He added there’s a different security guard posted every night, which has led to a discontinuity in service provided.

“I would say 60 percent of the problems have been addressed, and 40 percent remain,” Wander said.

Jennifer Davies of First District Councilwoman Sherri Lightner’s office said they have not been receiving complaints from neighbors since beefed-up security was introduced on the block about a week ago.
