Noise Control Program




The Office of Neighborhood Involvement is proposing increases across the board for all noise variance fees.  These are the fees the city charges applicants to ask for a variance from the Portland Noise Code, or Title 18.  


To all who provided feedback to the proposed increases, thank you for your input regarding the Noise Fee Schedule. In response to the feedback we collected this spring, the Noise Office is working closely with Commissioner Fritz’s office on a revised fee schedule. We hope to bring a new proposal to the Noise Review Board and to stakeholders in early to mid-July, with a more nominal fee increase, and a plan to work out a more robust Fee Schedule proposal in the next fiscal year.


During this process, we invite continued comments and feedback, as we plan our next steps along the way.


The next Noise Review Board meeting will take place on Wednesday, July 13, 2016, in the Lovejoy Room on the 2nd floor of City Hall (1221 SW 4th Avenue). Please continue visiting our website to get more information.
