Be A Good Neighbor

Being thoughtful and considerate when you host a party is just one more example of being a good neighbor. As a courtesy, let your neighbors know you are having a party.

Helpful Tips

  • Remember, noise travels far. Avoid pointing speakers outside or playing music too loudly inside. Large crowds generate a lot of noise as well.
  • Pick up any trash on your lawn immediately following the party. Trash is not a welcome sight for your neighbors or for the city's ordinance enforcement team. Help keep Ypsi and EMU clean...AND avoid being ticketed for a blight violation.
  • If a neighbor approaches you with concerns about your party, listen calmly and then accommodate their wishes to the best of your ability. It is in your best interest to resolve the situation with your neighbor rather than having the police get involved.
