Interview with Portland's Noise Control Officers

Portland was the first city in the U.S. to establish a Noise Control office. Has it done any good? Portland's Noise Control Officer Paul van Orden, his predecessor Paul Herman, and Noise Review Board chair David Sweet talk about what the office was designed to do, what it has actually accomplished and what they would like to do in the future. If you think helicopters, unmuffled cars and your neighbor's stereo are affronts to Portland's famed livability, or if you think a jackhammer makes a  beautiful sound, listen to this conversation to find out what rights and responsibilities you have.
