Charlottesville City Council Passes Noise Ordinance

March 4, 2008

Monday night Charlottesville City Council passed a noise ordinance 4-1 for all city restaurants and the downtown mall.

All city restaurants will have a new limit of 75 decibels after 11p.m. The reading is for outside the establishment. Restaurants are advised to keep the door closed to keep the sound inside.

The council says that if a police officer takes a reading with the door open then that will be the official reading. Noise on the downtown mall is limited to 75 decibels all day. That includes street performers and restaurants.
