City of Toronto invites residents to consultations on noise bylaw review

The City of Toronto is inviting residents to public consultation sessions on the noise bylaw review. The review aims to introduce updates that reflect Toronto’s growth and vibrancy, while enhancing noise standards that protect residents.

At the public consultation sessions, staff will present and seek feedback on developing updates to the bylaw. Feedback will be used to recommend updates to the bylaw in a report going to Council in spring 2019.

There will be five public consultation sessions, each focusing on a particular area of the bylaw.
