Except as otherwise specified in these rules, excessive noise is not permitted at any time.
Unless otherwise specified in these rules, “excessive noise” is any noise exceeding 65 decibels during the hours of 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM or 55 decibels during the hours of 11:00 PM to 8:00 AM, as measured within three to five feet of any exterior wall of the unit or location generating the subject noise or any other reasonable location that will assist in the determination whether the alleged noise violation constitutes “excessive noise”, using measuring tools and protocols approved by the Administrators. The standard for excessive noise generated by commercial enterprises operating in commercial units may be altered, if a commercial enterprise applies for and obtains a variance as provided for in these Administrators Rules pertaining to the operation of commercial enterprises.
Between the hours of 8:00 AM and 11:00 PM neighbors with complaints of excessive noise must alert Area Supervision to request enforcement of this rule prohibiting excessive noise; during these hours Area Supervision may not independently enforce this rule without authorization from the Managing Agent.
Between the hours of 11:00 PM and 8:00 AM, in addition to enforcing any complaint made by a neighbor, Area Supervision may independently enforce this rule. The Managing Agent or Area Supervision will investigate and request that any excessive noise or volume level be lowered, prior to any formal notice of violation being issued.
If an Owner or Occupant is planning an event in their unit and they anticipate that the event may cause excessive noise, and the Owner or Occupant wishes to obtain advance permission for an exception to the noise rule for that event, the Owner or Occupant may apply to the Managing Agent for such permission. An application must state the date of the event, the anticipated number or Guests, and the start and end times. The Managing Agent, in his sole discretion, may give permission allowing the event on such terms and conditions as he deems appropriate. An Application for such permission must be made to the Managing Agent no less than seven (7) days prior to the date of the event.
