While it is the nature of construction to be messy, noisy and paced to meet the pressure of deadlines and budgets, neighborhood sites generally require special consideration.

Common complaints often include radio noise, workers shouting, equipment noise - generators or the pounding of shoring beams, violation of allowed construction hours, delivery trucks, etc.

The Police Department enforces the City's Noise Ordinance (Title 5 - MBMC 5.48.060).
