Neighbors need not necessarily throw noisy parties or play loud music to disrupt the lives of those living close by. In this era of sensitivity to noise pollution, leaf blowers and lawn mowers are perceived as having the potential to create a credible noise problem. The first step in addressing this situation involves talking directly and respectfully to the neighbor making the noise in an effort to arrive at a resolution that both parties find acceptable. If that does not work, the noisy neighbor should be confronted with a copy of the local noise ordinance, with a note that repeats the request to keep the noise down. If this fails, a call to the police may be in order.
