We, the undersigned, petition the Broward County MPO to remedy the noise pollution problem caused by the damaging sound levels of train horns when passing through private neighborhoods in the downtown Fort Lauderdale area. As residents and business owners living within the vicinity of these road crossings, the noise caused by the train horns at all hours of the day and night is negatively impacting our right to the quiet enjoyment of our homes and condominiums; creating an environment that is detrimental to both health and well being; and limiting growth of small businesses due to an inability to have a professional work environment.
The frequency, volume, and hours of the train horns at night create a negative environment for sleep, healing, working, and the overall quality of life.
ACTION PETITIONED FOR: We, the undersigned, acknowledge that the "Quiet Zone" has been approved but is not scheduled to be implemented for 1 year. This timeline is far too long given the most urgent nature of the situation. We request the highest priority be given to this project, and implementation of the "Quiet Zone" be done before May 1, 2015.
