In 2016, Council heard concerns of noise in residential areas at town hall meetings. Council then directed administration to undertake a review of the noise provisions of the Maintenance Bylaw. As a part of the review process, Bylaw Services consulted with local businesses, Kwanlin Dün First Nation, and the Ta'an Kwächän Council.
