We have a noise bylaw in our community. Yelling, shouting or the like is prohibited between 11:00pm to 7:00am on weekdays and 11:00pm to 9:00am on week-ends.
Our immediate neighbours need constant reminding of this bylaw.
We have a wonderful home in a beautiful neighbourhood. And for some peculiar reason we have been surrounded by two families that behave in the most bizarre fashion. One family lives like an animal house with constant, excessive outdoor partying. And the other family is blissfully unaware that the constant screaming and yelling of their children is quite annoying. Particularly after midnight.
Thankfully the animal house family has sold their house. The other family is still hanging in there. We have had several discussions with them about the level of noise and it really comes down to this: we have to take the action to tell them that their noise level is inappropriate.
On Saturday, we were awoken after midnight by yelling and screaming in the backyard of our neighbour. It took two requests, at their door no less, to get the noise stopped.
I am certain that they do not understand the stress their constant noise has caused our family.
