TORONTO, May 13, 2016 /CNW/ - The Toronto Noise Coalition (the 'Coalition') finds that the proposed changes to Toronto's noise bylaws are without many of the key details that will allow Toronto to better manage noise.
The City is about to change the Noise Bylaw — and not in our favour. It proposes to allow noise inside our homes from an outside source (amplified music, construction, clubs , etc.) at 85 dBA from 7 am to 11 pm. That is equal to a snow blower running all day in your home. (New York City’s dBA limit for homes is 42 dBA.)
