Police Department Ask Arvada

Noise Disturbance

City of Arvada does enforce noise ordinances. If you plan to have an outside party and use a sound system the police department suggests you:

  • Contact all of your neighbors who may be within hearing distance of the sound system and advise them of what you are planning to do
  • Lower the volume

Even if you do this, if they feel they are being disturbed by the noise generated from your sound system they may make a complaint and it is their right to do so.  This would be the case regardless of whether you obtained a permit or not. Permits are usually obtained when you are having live music or a function where there is a professional sound system.
