Input invited on recommended Noise Bylaw changes
October 19, 2015 –
The City of Kingston has reviewed its Noise Bylaw and is seeking input from the public on its proposed changes.
"Regulating noise is a balancing act. Certain activities, such as sports or construction, produce noise, but also produce desired outcomes. We want to know whether the public feels we are finding that balance," says Kim Leonard, manager, licensing and enforcement.
She invites interested residents to review the proposed changes to the Noise Bylaw – now available for review at www.CityofKingston.ca/city-hall/bylaw-enforcement – and offer their comments through:
- An open house from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29 in Rooms A & B at the INVISTA Centre, 1350 Gardiners Rd.
- An online survey at www.CityofKingston.ca/GetInvolved. The survey begins Oct. 22 and the deadline is Nov. 5.
- An online chat from noon to 1 p.m. on Oct. 27, also at www.CityofKingston.ca/GetInvolved.
Comments will be compiled in a report to go before the administrative policies committee in December.
