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.

Depend on NewsChannel9 to have more on the public hearing throughout the evening.Chattanooga City Council Holds Public Hearing on Noise Ordinance Proposal
