Partiers will soon have a reason to "keep it down" in San Luis Obispo. The city's new noise ordinance will take effect on Friday, March 5th.
Last month, the San Luis Obispo City Council made some changes to the city's ban on unreasonable noises between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Right now, violators could receive several warnings each year before receiving a citation from police officers. But under the rules taking effect next week, violators will only be able to receive one warning in any nine-month period. Also, property owners can also be issued the citation, even if it's their tenants making the noise.
As far as changes to the consequences of noise violation citations, community service will be an option for first-time violators. But if those residents choose to pay a fine instead, those fees are going up. For the first violation, the new fine will be $350. That fine doubles if violators receive another citation within a year. And, if there are any other violations within that year, expect to pay $1,000.
