Revised Noise Ordinance

Imagine a world where patients get to go their doctor’s appointment without someone calling them fornicators and whores at 100 decibels… Can you imagine it??

LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN

Here’s how:

Charlotte City Council is considering revising the Noise Ordinance. This ordinance would prohibit the use of amplified sound within 200 feet of any medical facility, place of worship, or school during their posted business hours.

We have an opportunity to stop amplified sound in front of the clinic!

The vote will take place on Monday, June 24th.

WEAR WHITE AND SHOW UP EARLY FOR THE 6:30 MEETING TO STAND IN SUPPORT OF WOMEN!

Charlotte Talks on WFAE: Charlotte Talks is debating the noise ordinance Monday morning June 24th from 9-10.  They will have Mayor Pro-tem Julie Eiselt, Councilman Ed Driggs and attorney Patrick Baker.  Some background, Councilman Edd Driggs suggested an alternative solution was to let the protesters come into the healthcare clinics and hand out brochures. Yep.

Contact WFAE in the next few days – WFAE tweeted Friday the question to viewers “Do you think Charlotte should have a noise ordinance and a buffer zone/” through this link or charlottetalks@wfae.org
Main Phone: (704) 549-9323 or (800) 876-9323

Calling in preferred but can contact the same way as above.Here is what you can do right now, today, and yes, this is THE most important thing you can do – protests and whatnot are great, but right now this is where we need you:

Email city council. Here are their e-addresses

Dear City Council Member,

I am emailing to voice my full support of the proposed changes to the Charlotte Noise Ordinance (Ord. No. 4663,1, 5-23-2011). I support prohibiting the use of amplified sound within 200′ of medical facilities, houses of worship and schools, as well as the reduction of noise pollution from construction and increased fines for violators. This prohibition would not infringe upon the right to peaceful protest, and it would increase the quality of life for all citizens of Charlotte.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

(your name)
