Boston City Council will be holding a hearing to discuss excessive noise levels in the city. Councilor Edwards, representing District One, agrees this is an important issue for our neighborhood, as we are located close to TD Garden and are also a big tourist destination.
According to the City’s website, any noise louder than 50 decibels (approximately the noise level of a quiet conversation) between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. is considered unreasonable, and anything over 70 decibels (approximately the noise level of a vacuum cleaner) at any time is considered too much, except for permitted construction.
