Noise ordinance reform proposal on hold

By March 8, 2011

The noise ordinance reform proposal originally scheduled for discussion at the March 9 City-UC Davis Student Liaison Commission meeting has been postponed indefinitely.

The item was taken off the agenda Tuesday afternoon due to “internal issues” of the Associated Students of UC Davis, the group heading up the proposal, said Dylan Schaefer, the commission vice chairman and ASUCD’s city-county affairs point person.

Schaefer said there was no indication if or when the proposal will return for discussion.

Stacey Winton, the city staff liaison to the commission, said ASUCD is in a period of transition as its new elected members take office.

At a commission meeting in December, Schaefer said ASUCD believes the noise ordinance is vague and not comprehensive. He said ASUCD wants clarification on when police can issue citations and formal written warnings when officers first arrive at the scene.

The Oeste Manor Neighborhood Association, whose neighborhood is north of the UCD campus, has circulated a letter opposing any changes to the noise ordinance unless they are for stricter enforcement.
