Chattanooga City Council Holds Public Hearing on Noise Ordinance Proposal
The Chattanooga City Council heard from residents on Tuesday on a proposed noise ordinance for the city.

One venue at the center of the noise debate is Track29, which supports a change to the current sound levels to allow for louder music, city officials said.

More sound also comes with more rules. A map in the proposed ordinance informational summary shows the proposed controlled sound boundary in pink from Main Street on the Southside up to Fourth Street downtown. Loud businesses would need a new permit, and inspectors would check sound levels at property lines to make sure its in compliance with the following limits.
