City considering change to zoning code concerning noise standards
The Planning Commission has initiated a Zoning Code Text amendment, proposing amendments to the Residential Compatibility and Operational Performance sections of the Zoning Code in order to provide clear, reasonable and enforceable noise performance standards, and so that they match the city’s nuisance noise standards in Title VI of the City Code.
These changes also provide improved and city-wide construction operation standards. The proposed text amendment may be reviewed online at http://www.pittsburghpa.gov/dcp/notices and is available in paper copy at the Zoning Counter at 200 Ross Street, 3rd Floor. The paper copies may be examined between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding City holidays.
The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed text amendments on: Tuesday Oct. 27, 2015 at 2 p.m. John P. Robin Civic Building, first floor 200 Ross Street.
Testimony presented by individuals as well as by spokespersons representing an organization or a group of people will be limited to three minutes each; and, in addition, any person who intends to testify in behalf of an organization such as a chamber of commerce, community club, etc., shall provide a “Letter of Authorization” from the appropriate duly appointed officers before testifying.
Prepared comments, statistics or reports in printed form may be presented to the Commission to support testimony or in lieu of testimony. Testimony should not be read from a prepared statement, but may be generalized or summarized as testimony with the prepared statement handed to the Commission for their review.
