INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION OF APPLICATION FOR A
Print and fill in the details on the Noise Permit Form and then either mail or drop off at City Hall (20 East Main Street), or fax to (541) 488-5311 for approval. It takes, approximately, one week to process a noise permit request. The completed and signed application will act as your permit and will be forwarded to you once the signatures are received.
It is your responsibility to notify residents and businesses in the immediate area that may be affected by the amplified music prior to your event. It is important for surrounding residents and businesses to be aware of the event and to be in possession of a telephone number so they know where to contact you if necessary.
By notifying surrounding residents in advance of your event, it is the intention of the City of Ashland that you will have an opportunity to correct amplification levels if you are contacted directly by a resident. In the event the Police Department has to intervene, the permit will be voided at the event and amplification will not be allowed to continue.
Please Note: If you have a current business license for a commercial facility in the City of Ashland, which sets forth the nature of your business to include the playing of amplified music, it is not necessary for you to apply for a noise permit.
Please call the City Administration office at (541) 488-6002 if you have any questions.
