COLUMBIA — Columbia City Council will once again discuss changing the downtown noise ordinance.

The Special Business District approved recommendations for the council Tuesday for changes to the noise ordinance that were tabled at the Feb. 15 meeting.

Proposed changes to the ordinance would loosen noise restrictions downtown, although the most recent recommendations by the District are slightly more strict than those discussed in February. The changes relate to how far away and at what time of day noise needs to be audible to constitute disturbing the peace.

The ordinance defines downtown as the area east of Providence Road, south of Ash Street, west of College Avenue and north of Elm Street.
