Regulatory Framework Design

Government policy has a direct impact on the prospects of every city that is trying to grow their music ecosystem. Using evidence that is discovered from the census, we can begin to evaluate and reconfigure those regulatory policies that most affect the music economy.


Our team has decades of experience working within municipal government, not just developing policy, but actually implementing it with great success. One of our most measurable successes was reducing sound complaints in Austin, Texas by over 70% over a three year period.

Areas of interest may include:

  • Special Event permitting process

  • Entertainment & Cultural Districts

  • Land-use planning and zoning

  • Sound / Noise Ordinances

  • Cultural District Designation
