Residents can provide input on noise bylaw at two upcoming public meetings

2

As part of its regular by-law review process, The Town of Huntsville is seeking input on proposed changes to the Noise By-Law and will be hosting two public meetings to gather input from the community.

“It’s really important that residents come out to these upcoming meetings,” encourages Andrew Stillar Chief By-Law Officer for the Town of Huntsville. “Not only is it an opportunity for the community to review the proposed changes, it is a chance to provide input, feedback and ensure that the by-law clearly reflects the values of  its citizens with respect to noise and tolerance.”

Key proposed changes include clarification of definitions used in the by-law, noise exemptions, and increased fines as well as how the Town approaches provisions related to pet noise, excessive noise, special event noise, and statutory holidays, among others.

There will be two opportunities for the community to give input. Both meetings start at 7:00pm with a presentation from staff on the proposed changes to the Noise By-Law. Following the presentation, staff will be available to answer questions on a drop-in basis until 8:30pm.
