I'm pleased to share that the new Noise By-Law review was finally announced last week.
The review will focus on the outstanding issues related to the noise bylaw and will include virtual and in-person public consultations in late summer or early fall of this year.
The feedback from these public consultations will inform a staff report expected at the Economic Community and Development Committee in November, 2023.
Details on the implementation report for of the new Noise Bylaw is now available on the city's dedicated Noise By-Law Implementation website. This is where you can also subscribe to receive email updates, including notice of the consultations.
More details about how to get involved will be available soon, but I would encourage anyone who has dealt with noise issues to sign-up to be involved.
After a five year review, the Noise Bylaw was amended in 2019, resulting in sound level limits for amplified sound and motorcycles, changes to the noise exemption permit process, a new noise enforcement team with late night coverage along with a number of other changes.
The city was directed to report on the implementations of these amendments one year after they were adopted. COVID-19 delayed this process considerably.
Please make your voice heard and provide any feedback you may have through the public consultation process.
