Cabbagetowners will recall that we’ve posted in the past about proposed changes to the City’s Noise Bylaw (Chapter 591).
There was a meeting on May 19, 2016 of the Licensing and Standards Committee to discuss an amended version of the bylaw, but the “Licensing and Standards Committee deferred the item until September 21, 2016 with the request that the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards establish a working group with representatives from the Toronto Noise Coalition, Residents’ Associations, construction and entertainment business associations, BIAs, and other relevant stakeholders, and report back on September 21, 2016”.
This was a good decision in our view. The revisions to the original proposed changes, did not adequately take into account the views of many residents and resident groups. The Cabbagetown Residents Association Board has partnered with the Toronto Noise Coalition to ensure that our views are (ahem…) heard, and we’ve also been in touch with Councillor McConnell’s office.
