Community Noise Monitoring

Compliance to Community and Residential Noise Regulations

Community noise monitoringProgressive governments and city managers actively engage in monitoring community noise. Noise affects both the quality of life and health of citizens living in a community. Management of noise generally follows a pattern similar to the one below:

  1. Determine current noise levels at various city locations
  2. Update ordinances and zoning to concentrate noisy activities and preserve quiet areas
  3. Monitor noise levels to verify effectiveness of ordinances and zoning
