Coventry area residents are quite frustrated with the noise level of the music played by neighbors and say police aren’t doing much about it. “I find it extremely hard to live there when Hispanic neighbors are blasting music all day and all night long on the weekends”, one resident tells TLS. “I understand that they are entitled to celebrate the weekend, but my objection is to them blasting music during the night”.
Police were called to the neighborhood multiple times, the residents say, but say police have yet to resolve the problem.
Police say though that in many cases they will tell the residents to quiet down, but when they leave, the noise returns.
“If we return again, we do issue summonses”, an officer said, though not particularly referring to Coventry.
Neighbors realize it’s not an easy issue to resolve and are asking the landlords of those homes to see to it that the noise ordinance is enforced.
“I appeal to the landlords of Coventry to try and force their tenants to keep the music low or off after 8:00PM”, a longtime Coventry resident says.
In Lakewood, there is a noise ordinance between the hours of 11pm-7am, which is not limited to sirens, yelling, whistling and other noise makers. The noise ordinance also makes it illegal to cause noise which can be heard more than 50 feet away. TLS.
