Contact Us for Noise Complaints: Call 3-1-1
Denver has had a community noise program since 1973, when the Noise Ordinance (Revised Municipal Code RMC, Chapter 36) was passed by City Council and signed by the Mayor. When complaints of excessive noise are received by the Denver Department of Environmental Health, an inspector is assigned to investigate the complaint. If the complaint is legitimate, the source of the noise (individual/company/organization) receives a verbal or written warning of the violation requiring a noise reduction to legal levels. If the source does not comply with the warning, a court summons is issued. If guilty, a fine of up to $999 per incident can be levied by the court.
The Noise Control Program in Denver was designed and enacted to protect, preserve, and promote the health, safety, welfare, peace and quiet for the citizens of Denver through the reduction, control and prevention of noise. It is the intent of this program to establish enforceable standards that will reduce or eliminate unnecessary and excessive traffic and community noise that is physically harmful and otherwise detrimental to individuals and the community in the enjoyment of life, property, and the conduct of business.
