Help vote down noise ordinance in St. Pete...Send an email

Some downtown residents have complained about noise in downtown. City council tasked a committee to investigate and make a recommendation on a new noise ordinance. The current proposal includes a noise restriction of 65dB after 11pm. To compare, 60dB is frequently considered a conversation in restaurant or background music. 65dB is someone laughing. Many people appear to be against the ordinance as it will have a profound impact on downtown businesses and our (VI and SA) from enjoying downtown while living in a quiet community. Many of us chose not to live downtown because we understand it will be louder. If people do not contact city council, this ordinance has a good chance of passing. If you are against the strict ordinance, please email city council with the subject line - DO NOT pass the new noise ordinance. [email protected]. The vocal few are leading the charge to bring St. Pete to its old sleep, quiet ways of the past

I did look it up and 65 db is ridiculous.  These folks that purchased million dollar condos in downtown st. pete knowing it has become a nightlife mecca are now trying to take that away.

Take 2 minutes and send an email to: [email protected]
