Long Beach General Plan Noise Element and Amendments to the City’s Noise Ordinance (Long Beach Municipal Code [LBMC] Section 8.80)
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Document Description
The project involves both the adoption of a new General Plan Noise Element and amendments to the City’s Noise Ordinance, Long Beach Municipal Code Section 8.80, which regulates noise and implements the policies of the Noise Element. The new General Plan Noise Element would replace the City’s existing 1975 Noise Element. The proposed Noise Element includes strategies and policies intended to provide protection for land uses, as identified in the Land Use Element, from excessive noise and vibration sources, as well as to implement the vision of a healthy, livable noise environment in the City. As part of the proposed Noise Element, the City has established 16 strategies related to noise, which would aid review of future projects and their associated environmental impacts. Several amendments to the Noise Ordinance are also included as part of the project.
