San Francisco Police Ordinance for Entertainment Venues: Earplugs and Noise Abatement

SEC. 1060.28. EARPLUGS AND FREE DRINKING WATER.

If the location for which the place of entertainment permit is issued holds over 500 persons and contains a dance floor or other place primarily designated for dancing, the permit holder shall provide:

(a) Free cool drinking water to patrons by means of an automatic drinking fountain or by providing cups of water at all beverage service locations, or both; and

(b) Earplugs for free, or for sale on the premises at a reasonable price. (Added by Ord. 176-00, File No. 000477, App. 7/28/2000; amended by Ord. 215-02, File No. 021459, App. 11/1/2002)

SEC. 1060.11. POLICE - INSPECTION.

The Police Department, in addition to their several other duties, shall inspect any and all establishments which have been issued a permit pursuant to this Article. (Added by Ord. 140-70, App. 4/28/70)

SEC. 1060.12. NOISE ABATEMENT.

Whenever, upon due notice and hearing, it shall be determined that noise from any establishment which has been issued a permit pursuant to this Article interfered with the right of persons dwelling in the vicinity of such establishment to the peaceful and quiet use and enjoyment of their property, the Entertainment Commission may require that the premises be soundproofed in a manner that in the judgment of the Entertainment Commission will be effective to eliminate the noise or reduce it to a reasonable level. In taking any action under this Section, the Entertainment Commission must balance all of the interests of the respective parties, as well as the hardship which will result from any order. If the Entertainment Commission finds that the noise complained of is of a minimum or inconsequential degree, no action shall be taken under this Article. If a permittee fails, within a reasonable time and in no event more than 60 days after having been ordered to do so pursuant to this Article, to abate any noise, his permit shall be suspended after a second hearing, due notice of which is given, until such time as he complies with the order. (Added by Ord. 140-70, App. 4/28/70; amended by Ord. 164-02, File No. 020783, App. 7/26/2002)
