The City has released the draft Noise Element with the goal of providing a tailored approach to noise policy across Long Beach neighborhoods. The updated Noise Element will contain a set of goals, policies and implementation measures to limit noise exposure, particularly in areas with nearby housing, hospital, school or daycare center uses.
