The city is getting residents' opinions on noise bylaws in Mississauga
When should certain types of noise be permitted in Mississauga and how much noise is acceptable?
If you’ve got strong opinions on the subject, then there’s a survey you’re invited to fill out.
The City of Mississauga announced earlier this year that it’s updating its noise bylaws to make them “more responsive to community needs.”
“As the City evolves from a suburban community to an urban centre, there is an opportunity to modernize how noise is regulated,” the city said in a news release.
The potential changes will cover aspects such as the complaint response process, residential and construction noise exemptions, permitted periods for amplified sound, and noise thresholds.
To get feedback as it moves ahead in updating its noise control bylaw, the city has put out an online survey for residents to share their thoughts on how to manage noise now and in the future.
“We want to hear your thoughts on potential changes to our processes in areas such as permitted periods for noise, the complaint response process, and exemption permits,” said the city.
“We are working to ensure everyone who lives, works, learns and plays in Mississauga can enjoy a more liveable community.”
The survey closes September 30, 2020, so if you plan to fill it out make sure you do so within the month.
