Violations and Complaints

Violations of the noise ordinance could result in an administrative citation with fines up to $1,000. If you suspect the City's Noise Ordinance is being violated, contact the Noise Abatement Office at (619) 236-5500. Animal noise complaints may be handled by contacting the animal owner, Safe Streets Now or the Code Enforcement Division.

Noise complaints are generally prioritized by the number of complainants residing in separate residences. Noise complaints involving only one complainant are usually considered to be private matters between the parties.
