NOISE WARNING AT THE LAUREN CONSTRUCTION SITE + NEW BANNERS (PHOTOS)

New banners have been posted on the fencing around The Lauren ultra-luxury condos construction site at Hampden Lane and Woodmont Avenue. Another sign posted is a noise warning from the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection, advising that there can be no noise above 55dBA before 7:00 AM weekdays, or 9:00 AM on weekends. The Lauren replaces the now-demolished The Hampden, at a net loss of affordable housing units in downtown Bethesda.

So what is the start time for "quiet hours"? It's kind of meaningless if they're just going to give the ending time.

I think it says 7am start?
What's the penalty for commercial noise violation?

@ Brad Longley:

7 AM (weekdays) is the start of the "noisy" hours, not the start of the quiet hours.

When do the noisy hours end, and the quiet hours begin?

Brad Longley said...

Ah I misread that. A quick google search says 9pm.

I think it's mostly concerned with morning construction noise since they are usually long gone by the evening quiet hours start time.

It would be funny if apartment buildings had notices like these for "bedroom noise" complaints.

My guess is that nearby residents have complained about noise and the relevant County authorities are responding in a bureaucratic but potentially effective fashion.

OK, I missed this at first:

"...no esta permitido..."

That's atrocious Spanish. You don't use the verb "estar" to form passive voice. You use the verb "ser" or the reflexive construction.

Ok so long as you are pointing this crap out. Take the Spanish off.
