Tuesday was more than a typical Tuesday night city council meeting.
After complaints and comments about concert noise outside of Track 29, council members held a special meeting to make sure they heard from everyone who wanted to express their opinion.
The City Council chamber was filled with signs. People holding them are pushing for the proposed ordinance to go through.
"When the people were in this room and no one was speaking, it was already 50 decibels. We have a crazy ordinance that doesn't work for an urban environment," said resident Alison Morris.
For a chance to speak before the council, residents had to sign in and take a ticket. Green is for it, Red is against it and white is for with modifications. Only one person there picked a red ticket. They declined to speak before the council.
Developer Deb Royal says she's for the ordinance only if it's modified.
"At the possibility of allowable 80, 95 decibel ratio, our new ordinance would seem to allow for one of the loudest ordinances in the country. We cannot find a city that would allow 95 decibels. We would like for the allowed decibel ratio to be lowered," said Royal.
The hearing leaves council members with a lot of work to do before the first vote.
"We have a couple of weeks as individual council members to determine what modifications we want. I for one would want to see a base restriction between 3 am and 11 am that's lacking from the ordinance," said Chattanooga City Councilman Chris Anderson.
The ordinance will be voted on for the first time at City Council's regularly scheduled meeting, August 5th. By Alyssa Spirato
