Noise Review Board - Announcement of a Board Opening

Portland’s volunteer Noise Review Board currently has a position the City is looking to fill. One seat is open for a “Citizen at Large” community representative on the board.

The Board is comprised of five members including: three citizen at large positions, a representative from the construction industry, and a professional in the field of acoustics. Appointments to the volunteer Noise Review Board are made for a three-year period.

The Noise Review Board normally meets once a month on the second Wednesday evening of the month. The Board is charged with making decisions on Noise Variances for projects that range from nighttime construction projects to large outdoor concerts. The Board also works to develop long term objectives for achieving reduction of sound levels in the community.

If you have further questions regarding the Noise Review Board, contact the City’s Noise Control Officer, Paul van Orden at (503) 823-5829.

Interested parties are encouraged to file an official application for the City of Portland Noise Review Board and attend a Noise Review Board meeting (next scheduled meeting is February 8th, 2012 at 6 PM). Applications can be acquired from the City’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement. Completed applications should be filed by no later than Friday February 15, 2012.
