A Preferred Women's Health Center

City of Charlotte

Charlotte City Council members are expected to vote Monday night on proposed changes to the city’s noise ordinance, which was approved eight years ago. The current ordinance makes it illegal to intentionally create  “unreasonably loud and disturbing noise” in the city. Proposed changes would make the rules more specific.

The saga over parking and traffic violations outside of an abortion clinic in Charlotte marched on at City Council this week. The clinic had wanted there to be a parking ban on the street in front of the facility, but instead there will be a higher CMPD presence. WFAE’s Mark Rumsey spoke with Sarah Delia for an update.

The city's police and transportation department will not restrict parking outside a women's clinic in east Charlotte, City Manager Marcus Jones said at Monday night's city council meeting. The decision was made following a months-long push by abortion rights activists to ban street parking outside the clinic, to the objections of abortion rights opponents.
