Noise Ordinance

Posted in: Davies Plantation

Now that the Holiday season is upon us some of our neighbors have beautifully decorated their homes.  Some with lights, others with lights and sound.  How loud is too loud?  If you can hear the neighbor's music inside your house and late at night, what shoudl we do.  There a Plantation covenant #10 that states:

10. NUISANCES - No noxious or offensive activity shall be carried on upon any lot nor shall anything be done thereon which may be or become an annoyance or nuisance to the neighborhood.


Last year we did nothing but it has started again this year.  We hate to be unfriendly, but it is loud.  What would you do?  Should we just have the Bartlett police stop and give ask them nicely to lower the music?  Give us your thoughts.

I would go straight to the problem and discuss it with that person. Most of the time a simple conversation makes a big difference. Calling the police will just anger the other party and that woyuld just cause unwanted tension. However if the problem is not resolved then I would call the police and let them handle it the way they like to.

Sometimes these fools cannot be dealt with and will take OFFENSE that you don't like their activity ....................... I would rather just call the LAW and have them ENFORCE the ORDINANCE .............................. nip it in the bud.
