“I moved here in 1994, and it was relatively tranquil,” she wrote. “Now, there is new construction going on all over, trees are being leveled, hilltops razed and the sound of construction equipment is everywhere, with the incessant beeping of bulldozers backing up… no longer can I have breakfast or lunch in the gazebo, and forget sleeping past 7 a.m.”

The noise is “unbearable ” and the county has refused to do anything about it, Lamb continued.

Are you being bothered by construction noise? Has it been getting worse recently?
