Vancouver Gets Sound Smart

In the Dec 2005 issue of Vancouver’s CityNews newsletter is a surprisingly progressive item of interest to anti-noise citizens everywhere:

Noise is often an inescapable part of living in a city the size of Vancouver. But, there are ways to make some noisy situations more manageable. The City of Vancouver has created Soundsmart, a three-part series for residents concerned about noise. The Soundsmart brochure is a brief rundown on noise basics. There’s also a 20-page comprehensive noise guide that helps you understand noise, and offers do-it-yourself ideas for reducing noise in your home. Both are available for free to Vancouver residents at City Hall. An in-depth 100-page noise control manual is available for $20. All three Soundsmart publications may be downoaded for free online at www.vancouver.ca/soundsmart.

All of these are very worthwhile downloads, especially the very in-depth Noise Control Manual. It is a pleasure to see one’s own city take such initiative in a matter that’s so often glossed over.
