New noise hours for construction work recommended

The Sunnyside Planning Commission is recommending a change in the city’s noise ordinance that would restrict construction related noise to the hours of 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The ordinance presently allows construction noise at any time, day or night.

The new provision would allow for exceptions to be made by the city’s community development department if the work is deemed “of urgent necessity in the interest of public safety and convenience.”

The changes will be presented to the Sunnyside City Council for approval at a future meeting.
