Q. Is there a noise ordinance for undeveloped public beaches?
Dear Juneau Resident,
It would depend on if someone, like a camper, could hear the noise and was disturbed by the noise. It always helps to go back to the reasonable person standard. If you were camping and heard a certain noise from the beach, would you be disturbed? An investigating officer would look at the type of noise, how close it is to sleeping areas, the time of day, and determine if a citation is warranted.
