Summary: All commercial projects in Seattle must meet the requirements of the Noise Ordinance (Chapter 25.08 of the Seattle Municipal Code), which establishes acceptable noise levels for each land use zone. The stated intent of the Noise Ordinance is to “control the level of the noise in a manner which promotes commerce; the use, value, and enjoyment of property; sleep and repose; and the quality of environment.”
