Here is some information regarding noise in Cape Coral.

Everyone should print this out and when calling for disturbances hand it to the officer responding.

Trust me on this, I wish it wasn't so. I read the ruling and the wording did speak of music coming from moving vehicles but...... The sheriff's department issued a citation on Fort Myers Beach for loud noise, Judge Gonzalez dismissed the charge; he combined that FL Supreme court ruling and stated the noise ordinance was unconstitutionally over broad. I've talked to both the Lee county Sheriff's department and State Representative Rodrigues' office. I hope to hear more soon regarding clarification and will keep everyone informed.

PM me and I'll tell you who to contact if you want to verify what I've posted.

According to what I've been told, since the state's Supreme Court's ruling last December the noise ordinance was neutered (for lack of better words). I don't know about Cape Coral b/c I don't live there, all I can say is for those of us who live in the unincorporated areas of Lee County, disturbing the peace is now replaced with a person's "freedom of speech".

Oh. The thread is about Cape Coral. My response is about Cape Coral. In fact, my response to you in the direct message you sent me was regarding Cape Coral. I guess you won't be able to speak with the gentleman in the link I put up since you don't live in Cape Coral.

In any event, folks living in Cape Coral should try to reach this man if they have further noise issues.

I'll put the number here since it's being buried by someone not living in Cape Coral.

My young neighbours, have converted their garage into a bar and man cave. Almost every Friday night or Saturday night they party with loud speaking, singing and loud music. Most nights it's uo until 2am to 3am. I hear the noise even when I go to the back room. It's louder in my bedroom. I don't want to go to them but I would like to know where to go to get this matter cleared up. We are senior citizens and deserve some peace and quiet. Please advise what I should do. Be aware I do not mind some music, but there should be a cut off time. I think it is very unfair when I am on my computer I cannot concentrate because their music is so loud. Juniper

^Any HOA rules? Or an HOA management company? Sometimes they'll help out if they can.

Otherwise, you can only call cops/code compliance or go to them yourself.

You should only feel bad about standing up for yourself up to a point. They're the ones getting out of line, not you.

I usually let things be but on one occasion the music was soo loud the boom boom boom was thunderous and I had to call the police. I couldn't get to sleep and had to go to work in the early morning. If it is disrupting your life, you have a right to peace.

by not saying or doing anything you will make them think everything is fine and the neighbors don't care. sometimes if you just point out to them that it is an issue that is disrupting your life they will likely change. if you approach them nicely and non attacking and they don't respond then they are jerks and in that case it is the police's job to correct it.
