Only a few days left to take Asheville’s noise ordinance survey

Press release

from City of Asheville

ASHEVILLE – The City of Asheville today announced the launch of a campaign to gather input on proposed revisions to the city’s current noise ordinance. The revisions are currently being considered by City Council’s Public Safety Committee.

Feedback will be gathered through an online survey that can be found at:

Results of the survey will be analyzed and presented to the committee. Residents who prefer sending stand alone comments over taking the survey can send an email to with a subject line of “Noise Ordinance Comment.” Residents may also send correspondence to: City of Asheville, Community Relations Division, ATTN: Noise Ordinance, PO Box 7148, Asheville, NC, 28802 or call 259-5604.

Stand alone comments will be provided to the committee along with the results of the survey.

In addition to the survey, city staff will hold a public meeting on Monday, August 27 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. The meeting will be held at the William Randolph School located at 90 Montford Avenue, Asheville and will consist of breakout sessions where small groups will be able to discuss the proposed revisions and learn about steps being taken to make participation in the formal complaint process easier.

If feedback indicates there is interest in holding an additional afternoon meeting, a date will be set for those who cannot attend an evening meeting.

City staff will also be available to attend established neighborhood and business group meetings from August 15 – September 14. Residents can contact Neighborhood Coordinator Marsha Stickford at or 259-5506 to request attendance.
