Public Meeting to Discuss Noise Ordinance Changes

The second of two scheduled public meetings on proposed changes to Arlington noise control ordinance will be held tonight.

Code enforcement staff and police department officials will be on hand to answer questions and concerns about the planned changes, which will dramatically increase fines for noise ordinance violations while eliminating subjective standards for enforcement.

Tonight’s public forum will be held at the Shirlington Branch Library (4200 Campbell Avenue) from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.  At its October meeting, the Arlington County Board voted to defer a formal public hearing on the noise control ordinance changes until after public input was gathered at two meetings, the first of which was held yesterday.

The county has produced a video about the noise ordinance changes, as seen above.
