San Francisco Board of Supervisors Plans New "Noise Control Ordinance"
Supervisor Tom Ammiano has introduced "Noise Control Ordinance" legislation to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors that updates how the city regulates loud noise from mechanical sources like garbage trucks, ventilation systems along with bass and drum noise from nightclubs, which currently have no restrictions.
Non profit organization, H.E.A.R. supports the new San Francisco "Noise Control Ordinance" limits on noise level in the city.
Kathy Peck, Co-founder and Executive Director of H.E.A.R. has stated: "This new legislation is important in protecting San Franciscans' ears from hearing damage and nuisance noise. We congratulate Supervisor Tom Ammiano and the Entertainment Commission who are also supporting Supervisor Ammiano’s efforts to guide the city to a responsible plan that may help to prevent permanent hearing loss."
H.E.A.R., Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of hearing loss from loud music and noise through education and grassroots advocacy.
