The City of El Paso will be hosting a series of open house meetings to update the business community, particularly restaurants and nightlife establishments, about changes to the noise ordinance.
The changes take effect on August 26, 2019, and will require businesses with outdoor areas that are within 350 feet of a residential property to apply for the new outdoor amplified sound permit.
The changes will also regulate amplified sound outdoors between 10 p.m. and midnight.
Businesses that have outdoor areas that have amplified sound that ceases by 10:00 p.m. will not be required to obtain a permit, regardless of distance from a residential property.
