9.06 of our code book. The amount of noise that is acceptable is determined by the decibels produced. A chart on the Mayor's blog (http://provomayor.com/2014/07/31/how-do-i-get-an-exemption-to-the-noise-ordinance/) outlines the acceptable level of decibels (day is from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm). The ordinance does allow for exceptions for sounds created by parades, carnivals, special public social events, or special construction projects.
An exemption is granted by a permit from the Mayor.
Each exemption is issued under the condition that it can be revoked. It is expected that during the event the applicant will work with police if complaints are filed to accommodate the reasonable needs of neighbors.
