Motif Lounge: Stop playing insanely loud music into the wee hours of the morning.
Residents at the 360 Residences, downtown San Jose, deserve to have a good nights rest each and every night. When Motif is open for business, loud bass music can be clearly heard until 2am even when all triple pane windows and doors are locked up. This excessive noise needs to stop.
According to the city of San Jose, the following law is in place to prevent businesses from making excessive noise. Further, Motif Lounge has a permit on file with the city. If they violate that permit (which we believe they are currently doing), they will be fined and the city will stop them from playing excessively loud music. After speaking with officer Wilson of the SJPD, he suggested starting this petition to get the attention of the city.
With the help of management at 360 Residences, as well as your signature, we'll be able to stop this noise and be able to peacefully sleep in this wonderful building we call "home."
