Issues: noise complaint
4039 Masonboro Loop Rd Wilmington, NC 28409, USA
The newly opened Whiskey Creek Sports Bar at the corner of Masonboro Loop and Sound Rds is causing excessive noise in local neighborhood. Due to the new smoking ordinance, the bar customers tend to bring the bar noise out into the parking lot at various times during the evening. But worse than the loud voices, the bottle trash noise is the most annoying. Many times through the evening, large trash cans full of bottles and carried and dumped into the dumpster onsite. At closing time (2:00), this will happen several times and actually wake you from your sleep. This will happen again at around 6:30 in the morning as well, as employees empty the remaining cans. Worst of all is when the trash collection truck empties the dumpster (first thing in the morning).
This situation has become unbearable and I hear bottles being dumped as I go to bed, during my sleep and first thing in the morning.
There must be a way to handle this noise level.

I was walking down 17 1/2 mile road today when a tree immediately beside the road began making loud cracking noises: it seems primed to break into the road (it would land right into the NW-bound lane of traffic). The tree is on the north side of the road, almost directly across the street from the road sign that reads "Watch your speed, we are."

Music City Raceway is getting out of control. When I first moved up there, 27 years ago, knowing the track is noisy, it was only on Saturday nights. I realize the track has changed hands so all agreements are off. This past week the track ran Monday, Tuesday (Motorcycle race) Friday and Saturday nights and sometimes on Sundays. When the Jet cars run, you have to leave the hill. The issue is, our quality of life up here is really compromised since none of us around the neighborhood can be outside, work in our yards, have company over to our house except Wednesday and Thursdays during the week. Since this is a money making situation, common sense would say, the track should build a sound barrier similar to what is around the interstate. We know the track is going to run, they have more money than we do. You can hear the track more than 10 miles away and they run sometimes up to 1:00 in the morning. Next door neighbor has a 6 month old and I know, they get no rest with that baby. Just some kind of wall or sound barrier to help deflect the noise. I'm sure they don't want us to make them put mufflers on their race cars like the fairgrounds track had to. Just be fair about the situation, and we don't constantly want to hear the loudspeakers, tires squealing, engines roaring and the ever fragrant smell of tires burning, and blue fog hovering. Keep it all over there on them.

The tenants of 148 Meadow Street have a dog tied up during times when the town noise ordinance is in affect. The dog is tied up and barks as early as 5:30-6:00 am and many nights after 10pm. The pit bull also escaped constantly and the owners have no control over the animal. With the warmer months coming and the many children in the neighborhood that play outside I am worried there will be a tragedy when this dog again escapes and the owners can't control it.

I run by this lot once a day, and lately every time I pass it there's a tour bus idling in their hidden lot.
This is a problem because it:
* pollutes the air
* wastes energy
* creates a noise nuisance through a large part of the park nearby
* degrades the peace and quiet that are the park's purpose.
I request enforcement that parked buses be switched off at all times.
Buses can get used to it, or park in an industrial zone somewhere else.
This is "Golden Gate Park" not "Golden Gate Parking Lot". It's San Francisco's jewel. Let's keep it that way.

This summer has seen a drastic rise in numbers and sound volume of street preachers at Yonge and Dundas square. Every weekend without fail they descend on the high traffic intersection with an arsenal of extremely loud megaphones casting warnings of fire and brimstone that can be heard from a far. They sometimes block the road or sidewalk and distract drivers while harassing tourists and locals alike. I understand that free speech is important to any democracy and people should have the right to preach their beliefs in a public forum, however they do not have the right to use electronic sound amplifications that drown out any opposing views and risk damaging people's ears. The noise by-law specifically prohibits using these megaphones but the Toronto police seem hesitant to enforce this by-law.

A family on my block allows their three young children (between the ages of 6 and 12) practically free reign of the streets at night. I have witnessed these kids throwing rocks at cars, fighting, yelling, and screaming obscenities at one another. Tonight they were outside in the middle of the road (which is a fairly busy street), in the dark, hitting each other with shovels and yelling "I'll kill you." Kids having fun is one thing, but these kids are out of hand.
Not only is this a noise issue, but I am worried that one of these kids is going to get hit by a car. People speed down our street all the time.
I don't want to be rude or to make enemies with my neighbors, but I've lived here for three years now and these kids just get worse and more violent with each other every summer. Is there anything I can do about this? I called in a noise complaint once, but the police never showed.
