What is the Noise Element?
The Noise Element is a chapter of the City of Long Beach General Plan that sets forth policies regarding noise and land use throughout Long Beach. The draft Noise Element Update is designed to provide a tailored approach to noise policy across Long Beach neighborhoods and is consistent with the city’s development policies, including the Land Use Element. The updated Noise Element contains a set of goals, policies, and implementation measures to limit noise exposure, particularly in areas with nearby housing, hospital, school, or daycare center uses.
The October 2022 Draft Noise Element was made available for public review from October 14, 2022, through December 1, 2022. To learn more, visit the Development Services Department webpage.
