Q: The parties bring attendees from a few neighboring states. Our entire street is taken by cars parked on both sides. They come and go at all hours. They’re noisy and can be a very disturbing sight because of their wardrobe. I believe neighbor profits from activity since partygoers wear wristbands. I already asked neighbor to at least downsize his activities. He did nothing. Entire community is affected by this! (Oakmont, PA)
A: You could just keep call the police when the noise erupts. My approach would be to get a copy of the Borough Zoning Code and read it and become familiar with the applicable portions. I would do this before I talk to the Zoning Officer. It is very likely that Oakmont would have noise violations and possibly even parking restrictions if the street becomes that congested. You can also have neighbors unify and attend a borough council meeting. You probably need to schedule ahead of time if you want to speak. The more attention the neighbor’s house gets, the more likely they are to curtail their operations and move elsewhere.
