Noise complaints have been an issue for venues in San Francisco. According to SFGate, new legislation has been passed to protect music venues from potential lawsuits.
The legislation protects venues from a noise lawsuit if they are operating within the restrictions of their permit. Developers and the city would have to account for venues before building housing, and would have to notify new residents of the venue ahead of time.
Many venue owners and club employees showed their support for the measure. No developers showed up to oppose it.
