My house is in a residential neighborhood in East Charlotte that has a Hindu Recreation center planted right in the middle of it. My house is adjacent to the rec center property. For the past couple of weeks, they have been building some kind of addition to their property, and they have been working extremely late hours running loud excavating equipment. They may be getting ready to build a new parking lot also, I'm not sure.

Last night they were running this front end loader that beeps when it backs up until I finally walked over there and asked him to stop. It was almost 9:30 when I went and asked him to stop, that people in the neighborhood were trying to sleep. He didn't give me much flack about it, he went ahead and shut it off. Do city of Charlotte noise ordinances apply to this? Is there a certain hour that they have to stop working in residential areas like this? It would be nice if we could get them to leave no later than 6, but I don't know if I have any legal grounds to ask them to do that.

They are also tearing down trees and vegetation which served as a buffer between our two properties, and they have an old wooden fence that is starting to fall over. Since this is a commercial structure in a residential area, do I have any legal grounds to ask them to maintain that fence or vegetation between our properties, or do I have to pretty much take care of it myself?

Thanks for any input.

Thanks, I already looked through all that. I wanted input from others who have been in similar situations, and what the outcome was.

Once when the workers were busy working at 1130pm building a house close to me I called the cops and they quickly came out and stopped the noise from the hard workers...
