Noise ordinance revisions public meeting August 27

The City of Asheville will hold a public meeting Monday, August 27 to present information and gather input on proposed revisions to the city’s noise ordinance.

The meeting will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the William Randolph School located at 90 Montford Avenue, Asheville, and will consist of breakout sessions where small groups will be able to discuss the proposed revisions and learn about steps being taken to make participation in the formal complaint process easier.

The revisions are being considered by City Council’s Public Safety Committee.

The city is currently gathering feedback about the proposed changes via an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/noise_ordinance_revisions

Results of the survey and information gathered at the meeting will be analyzed and presented to the committee.  Residents who prefer sending stand alone comments over taking the survey can send an email to sm1@ashevillenc.gov with a subject line of “Noise Ordinance Comment.”  Residents may also send correspondence to: City of Asheville, Community Relations Division, ATTN:  Noise Ordinance, PO Box 7148, Asheville, NC, 28802 or call 259-5604. 

Paper flyers promoting the August 27 meeting are available to neighborhood representatives and stakeholders to distribute or can be downloaded at ashevillenc.gov/projects. City staff will also be available to attend established neighborhood and business group meetings through September 14. Contact Neighborhood Coordinator Marsha Stickford at mstickford@ashevillenc.gov or 259-5506 for more information.
