City of Alexandria Seeks Public Input on Revised Noise Control Code

For Immediate Release: September 25, 2019

The City of Alexandria is providing opportunities for the public to review and comment on proposed major revisions to the City’s Noise Control Code. This code was originally adopted in 1963 to control noise levels and protect public health, safety and welfare. 

The code establishes definitions, controls and expectations for limiting noise in Alexandria. The City does not have the authority to regulate noise generated from aircraft, railroads, state roads or federally owned land.

The community can provide comments online or at one of two public meetings, where City staff will present information about the code revision process. 

  • October 1, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Alexandria City Hall, Room 1101 (301 King St.).

  • October 10, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Patrick Henry Recreation Center (4653 Taney Ave.).

For additional information about the Alexandria Noise Control Code (including proposed revisions and frequently asked questions), and to submit comments online, visit

For reasonable disability accommodation, contact or call 703.746.4990, Virginia Relay 711.
