Noise and Disorderly Conduct
Although residential communities do not have specific "quiet hours," it is important to respect the differing lifestyles of your neighbors in regard to noise. The parents next door may be putting their children to bed at 8 p.m., just when you're ready to turn up the stereo. Loud parties, unnecessary shouting and amplified sound are all examples of violations of general neighborhood common courtesies. Neighborhoods are full of working professionals, families with children and older adults who seek respectful neighbors in their community.
In general, Lexington's Noise Ordinance (Sec. 14-70) prohibits any noise that can be heard outside your apartment or house that would "annoy or disturb a reasonable person of normal sensitivities."
The Lexington Area Party Plan (Sec. 14-96) sets fines of up to $500 for residences that have multiple noise, disorderly conduct or alcohol/drug violations.
