Local citizen organization will lead discussion on noise

Historic City News was informed that at the urging by local members of St. Augustine Livability & Sustainability Alliance (SALSA), the City Commission has agreed to hold a workshop on the growing noise problem in our city.

The meeting will be held at 9:00 a.m. Thursday June 23rd in the Alcazar Room of City Hall. SALSA has prepared a detailed study and position paper to assist the Commission as it looks for a comprehensive set of solutions.

“This is just the beginning of an ongoing process of planning, ordinance changes, enforcement actions, and above all, a cultural shift that will see neighbors working together to bring this and other problems under control,” SALSA spokesman Richard Bozung told Historic City News last week.

The commission workshop will serve as the June meeting for SALSA members whose participation and comments Bozung said is welcome.
