Noise Ordinance

Presently, the City does not have an adopted noise ordinance. Instead, there are policies in the 2035 General Plan which encourage the discussion and ultimate adoption of noise regulations.

In Title 15, “Buildings and Construction,” there are regulations relative to construction work hours, but no regulations that generally addresses noise or other activities that generate noise or could be considered a nuisance. Absent an adopted ordinance that addresses more comprehensive issues, the Police Department is limited in what they can do in response to citizen complaints.

On January 14, 2020 at the City Council meeting, we will be discussing the proposed ordinance be included in Title 8 under Chapter 8.12 “Public Nuisances.” Updating Suisun City Code, Title 8 “Health and Safety,” to include noise regulations would allow for needed policy updates, as well as an enforceable standard by which the Police Department can uphold.
