Amended noise ordinance affects builders and contractors

Amended noise ordinance affects builders and contractors

Builders and contractors need to take note of Miami-Dade County’s amended noise ordinance, affecting work done at or near residences in unincorporated parts of the county. 

In May of 2023, the county amended sections 21-28, prohibiting the operation of noise-producing construction equipment and machinery at or near residences, including multi-family residences, between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m.  

If you must work during restricted hours, you must obtain a Temporary Noise Ordinance Waiver (NOW) from RER’s Construction Permit and Building Code Division, before commencing work. The waiver applies to work and construction activities “inside the property line,” (i.e. no road closures), and requires an active building permit. All waivers will require the applicant to submit an explanation of how the requested work will provide a community need, public purpose or benefit.

You can apply for a temporary NOW waiver online via RER’s Plan Status and Application Submission Portal.

You will need to upload these documents into the portal:

  • Noise Ordinance Waiver Application
  • The stamped and dated USPS receipts of certified mail for the notification letters sent to neighboring properties. The applicant must notify adjacent and adjoining properties of your request for a waiver at least 72 hours prior to the commencement of the permitted work.
