Proposed Revisions to Noise Ordinance

The Town of Christiansburg is proposing revisions to the noise standards in Town. The changes include two ordinances:

1. An ordinance to amend Chapter 24 “Nuisances” of the Christiansburg Town Code in regards to Article II – Regulation of Noise. Please read our document (PDF).

2. An ordinance to amend Chapter 42 “Zoning” of the Christiansburg Town Code in regards to permitting a loudspeaker/sound amplification/outdoor sound system to be used in excess of the Chapter 24 “Nuisances” Article II – Regulation of Noise by Conditional Use Permit in the Agricultural (A), Mixed Use: Residential-Limited Business (MU-1), Mixed Use: Residential-Limited, Business-Limited Industrial (MU-2), Limited Business (B-1), Central Business (B-2), General Business (B-3), Limited Industrial (I-1), and General Industrial (I-2) zoning districts. This will allow a property owner to seek a conditional use permit if they anticipate exceeding the noise limitations set out in Town Code. Please read our document (PDF).
