SECO NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL
About Quiet Zones
Seco Neighborhood Council represents approximately 25,000 Los Angeles
residents, businesses and organizations along the Lower Arroyo Seco,
near where it merges with the Los Angeles River. We are hillside and
canyon communities, and noises reverberate throughout our residential
canyons. Immediately to the South is the Metrolink and the new Los Angeles
Gold Line now runs through the old Santa Fe rail line along the Arroyo.
Until the construction of the Gold Line, we were protected from undue
horn-blowing by Section 72.12 of the Municipal Code for the City of
Los Angeles, the "Quiet Zone" Ordinance No.150.410. Through many large,
well-attended public meetings, our stakeholders have requested re-establishing
limitations on horn-blowing and bell-ringing in residential areas. We
feel that the old Quiet Zone served our community well, and look forward
to working collaboratively with public authorities to re-establishing
a Quiet Zone in our area.
