Noisy Bar Patrons Keeping You Awake? CB6 To Host Meeting On Rules Governing Eating And Drinking Establishments


As the weather has warmed up in the last few weeks, many local residents have had to close their back windows and take out the ear plugs. All along commercial strips like Smith Street, Court Street, and 5th Avenue, restaurants and bars have swung open their doors and are infringing on their neighbors' right to a good night's sleep.

The proliferation of drinking establishments has certainly aggravated the problem in our mostly residential neighborhoods.
To help clarify the rules and regulations governing eating and drinking establishments, Community Board 6 is addressing the complaints from residents by hosting an informational meeting. Read the information below.

CB6 Public Safety/Environmental Protection/Permits & License Committee
is pleased to host an Informational Meeting 

In an effort to better understand the rules and regulations governing restaurants and bars in our district, representatives from City agencies and local precincts will be on hand to answer any questions in respect to noise, smoking, backyard usage, garbage and other related issues.
Please join us on:

DATE: Monday, May 24, 2010
TIME: 6:30 pm
PLACE: Community Board 6 District Office
250 Baltic Street, Auditorium
(Between Court & Clinton Streets)

Bring your neighbors! Bring your friends! Find out what’s going on.

If you are having a problem with a particularly noisy establishment, this is the meeting for you. Please also take the time to write a comment below to document your complaint!

We've experienced more noise recently from bars in our neighborhood, enough to make opening the windows prohibitive. What was a rarer occurrence seems now to be an every-night thing!

Upper Second STreet is getting construction noise all day long with the 360 Smith Street and MTA construction noise at ALL hours on weekends from the never ending "track repairs" on the F line.

There are also people drinking and congregating often outside the subway entrance very late at night on weekends. Grrrrr

Any meetings for these?
