Letter: Noise ordinance should include construction



I found your recent article (on proposed update to Carmel’s noise ordinance) very interesting but wanted to point out that it is much more difficult to ignore the building noises that construction companies make while constructing new homes than it is to ignore the sounds of a lawnmower. The city allows this as well.

There have been Sunday mornings at 7 a.m. that I have to listen to nail guns and large equipment because there are homes nearby that are allowed to be built at odd hours. If the lawnmower issue is going to be enforced, then this should also be revised.
