Between the hours of 10:00 PM - 7:00 AM, Apex "Nighttime hours", trucks stage at the Apex Costco. During this time, engines and/or truck refrigeration units run, which creates a humming/ low end frequencies that can be heard dramatically inside of houses close by.

Sign this document to encourage Costco and the Town of Apex to enforce restrictions on trucks staging to park.
