Local Law regulating Sound within the Village of Upper Nyack

Local Law #6 of 2021 regulating sound within the Village of Upper Nyack (formerly titled the Noise Law of the Village of Upper Nyack) was passed by at the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees on June 17, 2021.

The making and creating of unreasonably disturbing or excessive Sound within the Village of Upper Nyack is a condition which has persisted, and the level and frequency of occurrences of such Sound continues to increase. These sound levels are a detriment to the public health, comfort, convenience, safety and welfare of the citizens of the village. It is the intent of this Local Law to balance the rights of residents and property owners to use their property in a reasonable manner with the rights of others in the Village to the quiet enjoyment of their property and to be free of excessive, continuous, unnecessary or disturbing sound. The full text of the law is available on or a copy may be obtained from the Village Clerk.

The law regulates sounds produced by leaf blowers, outdoor power tools and machinery, heavy machinery, ratios, TVs, outdoor music at restaurants, and animals. To report a sound law complaint, please contact the Clarkstown Police at 845-639-5800. Offenses are punishable by a fine of $250 for the first offense and $500 for each subsequent offense in the same calendar year. Property owners, not the equipment operators, are cited for the violations. A mailing about the law will be sent to every property in the village and to every landscaper licensed in Rockland County.
