Weekdays 6AM - 10AM

The City of Tampa wants to quiet the nightlife scene in Ybor City and Channelside!

City Council members plan to vote on this big issue today to determine if a new noise ordinance would help make the areas quieter. If passed the rules would change banning any outdoor speaker after midnight.

The Ybor City District and the Arena District would have to limit decibel levels after 1 a.m.

The Channel District would be changed from an entertainment zone to a residential zone. That would mean changes to how loud noise is enforced. Officials would no longer need a noise measuring device, and instead, could determine on their own if the noise level is unreasonably loud.

With the new rule though, there would be no official warning issued for those clubs and bars!

“According to the City of Tampa, they received 548 Noise Complaints in 2021. The City of Tampa Police Department Received 12,000 calls for noise complaints between January 2019-October 2020.”
