City of Toronto invites residents to consultations on noise bylaw review
  
The City of Toronto is inviting residents to public consultation sessions on the noise bylaw review. The review aims to introduce updates that reflect Toronto's growth and vibrancy, while enhancing noise standards that protect residents.

At the public consultation sessions, staff will present and seek feedback on developing updates to the bylaw. Feedback will be used to recommend updates to the bylaw in a report going to Council in spring 2019.

There will be five public consultation sessions, each focusing on a particular area of the bylaw.

• Power equipment (such as leaf and snow blowers, and restrictions on time of use)
Monday, January 28, 6 to 8 p.m.
North York Civic Centre, Members' Lounge, 5100 Yonge St.

• Motor vehicles (such as vehicle noise on highways and private property)
Tuesday, January 29, 6 to 8 p.m.
Metro Hall, Room 310, 55 John St.

• Amplified sound (such as music from bars, and decibel limits)
Wednesday, January 30, 6 to 8 p.m.
Scadding Court Community Centre, 707 Dundas St. W.

• Construction noise (such as restrictions on time and noise management)
Tuesday, February 5, 6 to 8 p.m.
Centre for Social Innovation Regent Park Lounge, 585 Dundas St. E.

• General noise (such as playing instruments and residential noise)
Wednesday, February 6, 6 to 8 p.m.
The Garage, 720 Bathurst St.

Feedback can also be emailed to mlsfeedback@toronto.ca.
