Nighttime Noisy Construction Permits – Online Petition and Meeting on Monday!
|October 18, 2014||Posted by jamie under Activism||
The City’s leaders are prioritizing the profits of developers yet again (big surprise since they’re major political money contributors, right?). Please watch this news clip about the excessive numbers of nighttime construction noise permits that San Francisco’s Dept. of Building Inspections keeps approving with no regard for the impacts of sleep deprivation on all of our safety (sleepy drivers make for more accidents on the roads) and particularly the health, safety, and well-being of directly affected neighbors:
There is an agenda item on this topic on Monday at San Francisco City Hall, Room 263 starting at 1:30pm – see Item number 5, Hearing – Night Noise Permits in Residential Areas, on the Agenda: https://sfgov.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=A&ID=347267&GUID=AC98FD09-7AC2-46A4-982C-61A9E6672661
While most of us will be earning our mortgage payment at jobs and unable to attend, if this issue affects you in a major way, you’d better take time off to go testify and make public comment to ask the City to stop harassing and harming your health with the excessive issuance of nighttime noisy construction permits.
Please sign my petition on this topic and share it on Facebook/Twitter/building mailing lists:
I created a petition to Jane Kim, District 6 Supervisor, Scott Wiener, District 8 Supervisor, and 8 others titled “Stop DBI’s Approvals of Harrasment with Excessive Night Construction Noise Permitting”.

This is another example of the City just not being conscientious or possibly even interested in the health, safety, and well-being of residents in South of Market, in my opinion. Until we all start raising a little hell and making it clear that we should be treated fairly and the same as other residents in the more mature residential areas, we’ll keep getting treated like second class citizens. Please sign the online petition – it takes two minutes. If you can, please attend the hearing on Monday.
