My neighbors have frequent loud parties that are a disturbance. What should I do?

The City has a noise ordinance that prohibits unreasonably loud or disturbing noise by voice, musical instrument, amplification, television, car, etc. between the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. If noise gets too loud from a neighboring property, you may wish to ask your neighbors, if you feel comfortable doing so, to lower their music, voices, etc. If, after speaking to them, the noise level does not improve, or, if you feel you cannot speak to them, call the Police Department non-emergency number at 216-321-1234 while the party/loud noise is in progress. Sometimes the noise stops before the police arrive. If loud noise from a neighboring property is an ongoing problem, call Community Relations at 216-291-2323. A letter will be sent to your neighbors asking them to call Community Relations to discuss the problem. In an emergency situation, of course, call 911.
