Tracking outcomes is necessary to smart and good governance. Data driven decisions focused on outcomes is critical…

James Grant, legislator from Tampa

This is article is part of a continuing series that discusses the noise issue, how I became involved, wasted tax dollars, encroaching business districts on the neighborhoods, data and trend analysis, City and Council's role, noise pollution and how this has impacted me.

I had been conducting data and trend analysis for the noise calls to police for the Flamingo Resort. Hollywood Nights South ranked #3 for bars and clubs. The business address is 1205 Dr Martin Luther King Jr St S. Below is the heat map of noise calls and non-noise calls.

According to the Hollywood Nights South Facebook page they opened on March 22, 2013.

Heat Map of Noise Calls (Yellow) and Non-Noise Calls, March 22, 2009 - 2016

Data tables.

A detailed analysis of the calls times are not available. The time stamp was not provided. Without the time stamp, I opted not to analysis the non-noise calls. These are simple reports the city could be providing to the neighborhoods. Once generated, they can be automatically updated and emailed.

Public input is being sought on the Noise Ordinance. You may express your concerns and thoughts by emailing the Mayor at mayor@stpete.org, and your council member, council@stpete.org.
