    This is the second night of outdoor amplified sound. Last night went until 2am this morning. They routinely do this with no permit.

    Calling the police does nothing.

    Nothing gets done about constant loud music/bass coming from Swampcity, Fletchers & now High Dive. The barrage lasts till 2am on the weekends and midnight on various weeknights. Calling GPD does nothing as it takes 2-3 hours to respond and by then they are shutting down. It supposedly violates the noise ordinance that no one enforces. There are homes throughout this area, familes trying to sleep. Why does each place have to broadcast their music a mile or more away?

    Bass has been coming into our home for over an hour now and it looks like Swamp City is gearing up for another day....night...and weekend of it.

    Neighbors and a policewoman have said that you have to meet a certain decibel level at 200 feet away, I'm a lot more than 200 feet away and I can hear it through three walls. So can my kids.

    As for those decibels the ordinance says something different.

    Section 15.2 says the following is a noise disturbance...read (3) carefully.

    " Noise disturbance means any sound which:

    (1)

    Disturbs a reasonable person of normal sensitivities;

    (2)

    Exceeds the sound level limits set forth in this chapter; or

    (3)

    Is plainly audible as defined in this section.

    Person means any person, person's firm, association, copartnership, joint venture, corporation, or any entity public or private in nature.

    Plainly audible means any sound or noise produced by any source, or reproduced by a radio, tape player, television, CD player, electronic audio equipment, musical instrument, sound amplifier or other mechanical or electronic soundmaking device, or nonamplified human voice that can be clearly heard by a person using his/her normal hearing faculties, at a distance of 200 feet or more from the real property line of the source of the sound or noise. "

    There appear to be entries for this address dating back over two years. Is the owner an informant for GPD so he gets a pass to screw families and the neighborhood? It is hard to believe that as many people as have filled out this form that GPD has never issued a citation.

    Music with heavy bass has been playing outdoors since roughly 5pm. The volume is continuing to increase and can be heard in every room in our house now.

    I wish GPD would actually enforce the noise ordinance. It will no doubt go unchecked until 2am again and tomorrow GPD will say they are notifying officers to check (on a Monday night).

    City Ordinance Sec. 15-3.(d)(2) clearly includes "electronic audio equipment" and "sound amplifier".

    "No person shall operate, play or permit the operation or playing of any radio, tape player, television, electronic audio equipment, musical instrument, sound amplifier or other mechanical or electronic soundmaking device that produces, reproduces or amplifies sound in such a manner as to create a noise disturbance across a real property boundary..."

    There are Routine "noise disturbance across a real property boundary".

    Loud music is continuously blasted above noise ordinance levels even during the week with events now Thurs-Sunday. The music is intrusive to homes in the area and can be heard several streets away.
  • 130 Nw 6th St Gainesville, FL, 32601, USA - 311GNVPolice Sector 4
    Loud street racing and vehicle music. Why does the city and GPD continue to allow this to happen. Not only is it disturbing of the peace the street racing is extremely unsafe. Ongoing issue every week.

    The music started coming in the house before 3pm today and didn't end last night until after after midnight. Our kids can't see. They can't study. How is this business prioritized over the residents that preceded it? There is no need for amplified sound that loud if you audience is right in front of the speakers. Is this going to be allowed all weekend again? Plus three nights next week until 2am it looks like?

    Oh has no citation been issued to this business yet?
