Some advice from New York City
This document outlines some of the advice and information we received from Charles Shamoon during our research of the NYC Noise Code. Mr Shamoon was the lead author of New York City's Noise Code. The document contains links to many of the rules and the resources used to assist industries to comply with the NYC award winning Noise Code. While this is not a comprehensive source of the relevant information, we hope it will provide a starting point for research to achieve a noise by-law that provides protections to the residents of Toronto of the type that NYC has provided to its residents.
As we note in the introduction to this supplement to the TNC Position Paper Mr Shamoon has expressed his willingness to discuss his experience with the Noise Working Group. The TNC encourages the City to arrange this discussion for one of the Working Group meetings.
