The Port of San Diego has commissioned the Barrio Logan Nighttime Noise Study to identify nighttime noise sources and prepare the Port, the City of San Diego, and maritime industry to work with the community to find ways to decrease nighttime noise. Nighttime noise is a neighborhood issue that affects quality of life, including mental and physical health.

About the Study

Download the Flyer

Through the end of 2019, the Port will be collecting information and data through extensive community outreach, including consultation with local businesses and industry, a community survey, and data collection by portable monitoring equipment. The collected information will help the Port figure out what can be done to reduce nighttime noise and improve the quality of life for Barrio Logan residents.

Who is Making the Noise?

The study will discover if nighttime noise is being made by shipyard and maritime operations, interstate freeway traffic, railway activity, on-road diesel trucks, construction activity, downtown activity, and other nearby operations or events.

Community Survey

The community survey, available in English and Spanish, can either be filled out online or via a form that can be printed, filled out and mailed in.

In-Person Interviews 

On Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., small outreach teams will be conducting in-person interviews throughout the Barrio Logan neighborhood at high traffic locations, such as local restaurants and community institutions. The approximate schedule is as follows:

The outreach teams will ask residents about their experiences with disruptive noises during nighttime hours via questions about the location, time, frequency, and other types of noises they’ve heard themselves or described by others. In addition to interviewing residents, representatives of local businesses and industry will also be interviewed in order to increase understanding about nighttime industry operations and procedures.

Final Report

After completing the interviews and collecting the survey responses and monitoring data, the Port will analyze all of the information draft and issue a final report that will identify recommended strategies, practices, and procedures, if applicable, that could be potentially implemented to reduce nighttime noise nuisances.
