Yard Sale Ordinance & Changes to the Site Plan Review Ordinance to be on Town Meeting Warrant (3/04/2023)

Contrary to a popular rumor, there is no noise ordinance in existence or proposed in Waterford. The proposed changes to the Site Plan Review Ordinance (which reviews proposed commercial projects) increase the sound levels allowable. The current standard for noise levels for new commercial developments are 45 dB during the day and 35 dB at night. The planning board is concerned that these noise levels are so low, they would prohibit nearly any proposed commercial development and have consequently proposed increasing the sound levels to 55 dB during the day and 45 dB at night. See these decibel charts to get a sense of these sound levels. Again, these sound levels are only applicable to a proposed new commercial business or activity.

See proposed changes to Site Plan Review Ordinance (in red pages 17 & 18) here.
