Get Loud Aspen

Following a series of noise complaints filed by a resident of downtown Aspen and eventually a trial, City Council this week agreed to support increasing the legal decibel levels on restaurant row.  The changes would also allow noisy festivities until 11 pm, two hours longer than current rules.    The looser noise ordinance is expected to be in place by July.  Council member Adam Frisch enthusiastically supports the change.  He spoke with APR's Roger Adams. (note: their conversation registered below 65 decibels.)

Hey Now, What's That Sound?

  Next week, the Aspen Brewing Company goes on trial for breaking the city’s noise ordinance.  The business was issued citations for having music and general bar sounds that were too loud at the property line of a neighboring penthouse condominium.  The residents there had called police complaining about the noise last August.  APR's Roger Adams reports.

  Aspen has clear rules regarding sound levels.  Enforcement of these rules is handled by Aspen’s Environmental Health Department.

“We are sort of the keepers of the city’s noise ordinance.”
