MontCo. considers relaxing noise rules

By Washington Post editors

A Montgomery County Council committee is scheduled to take up a bill Monday that could relax noise restrictions near the outdoor Strathmore Hall and potentially lift them altogether for the streets of downtown Silver Spring and Bethesda, TBD.com reports.

Montgomery County's noise limits are 65 decibels during the day, and 55 during the evening. The bill would eliminate those limits for the Bethesda and Silver Spring urban districts.

To read more on the bill, go to TBD.com.

Perhaps MoCo should ask the residents of downtown Silver Spring what they want. People do actually live there. Find out if they want more noise. I for one, do not.

I live on Blair Mill and it's already too loud.

the real question for a real reporter is to find which business-people are kicking-back money to Mont Co politicians to get rid of the law, so they can add loud bars and clubs yucking it up all night long.
