I’ve added a set of pages that have what I believe to be the entirety of sections dealing with noise limits from the City of Austin Code of Ordinances. You can access them through the link at the top right of the page.
The Title pages contain entire chapters and sections, copied straight from the code. The summary page contains my best interpretations of each of the line items found throughout the code that deal with noise level limits.
I will try to keep this as updated and accurate as possible with the aim of providing a quicker, easier reference than searching through the full Code of Ordinances.
Take a look at the summary page and I think you’ll agree that our noise ordinance is needlessly complicated. Also, if there’s something I’m missing, please point it out so I can add it. I literally assembled these pages by searching the Code for the terms “decibel” and “noise.” I could very well have missed something.
