Port Orange Noise Ordinance Revisions

Mayor Green,

P.O.SealWe have amendments City Noise Ordinance for tonight.  I will admit that I do not know the City Noise Ordinances very well, so my questions may be clearly covered somewhere already.  I do not mind a little noise when it is very necessary.  It looks like we are removing some specific noise level exemptions or level allowances.

Maybe we could address some real world type noise items in the discussion tonight.  Here are a couple of my thoughts.

  1. A couple of my neighbors had their roofs replaced recently.  It makes a lot of noise for a day or so.  I would not want this type of noise adversely affected by the changes.
  2. My neighbor has a loud lawn mower, but he keeps his lawn very well manicured all year.   I would not want this type of noise adversely affected by the changes.
  3. Some local bars have louder music during major events in the area.  I would not want this adversely affected either.  (Others may disagree)
  4. There can be some events the City Center, like Family Days that are quite loud.  I would not want this adversely affected either.

 

These are just a few items that hopefully we can include in the discussions tonight.

 

Thanks,
