Aspen's noise ordinance outlines the maximum noise levels allowed during nighttime and daytime hours in each of the City's zone districts as measured in decibels (dBA):

Noise Ordinance decibel levels

  1. Noise Meters Available
  2. Gas Powered Leaf Blowers
  3. Amplified Noise
  4. Construction Noise

Noise Meters Available

If you are concerned about the level of noise at home or work, you may borrow a noise meter from our office to check the noise level at your property line.

Talking to your neighbor before making an official complaint will often deliver the best results. If communication fails, contact our department or the Aspen Police Department. Both departments will be able to take readings at your property line to determine if the noise in question is within allowable limits for the zone district, and if necessary, contact the neighbor.
