Noise Restrictions

When a person willfully and maliciously disturbs another with loud and unreasonable noise this could be a violation of 415 of the penal code.  Additionally, should the noise significantly affect an entire neighborhood it could be a violation of 370 of the penal code.  Zoning ordinances regulate how much noise in decibels a specific residential, or commercial area can generate.  


If person has an unruly party, and police have to respond a second time after already warning the person responsible for the party, they could have to pay a response fee.
