Community Noise

Anchorage's Municipal Noise Ordinance (AMC15.70) limits the level of allowable noise based on location and time of day. We respond to complaints of excessive noise. Complaints may be filed by calling (907) 343-4200.

A "noise permit" allows a temporary increase in allowable noise levels. Only certain events are eligible for a noise permit. These events include:

  • Construction
  • Explosives
  • Public events
  • Snow removal
  • Motor vehicle racing events

Those wishing to apply for a noise permit should submit the application at least 20 days in advance of the event. The application may be submitted in person at 825 L Street, third floor, Monday - Friday, between 8:30am - 4:30pm (we are closed for lunch between 1:00pm - 2:00pm). Payment is required at time of submittal.
