Bradley Vite created and pioneered an innovative noise ordinance and noise enforcement program in Elkhart, Indiana, which has received wide recognition for its novel approach and subsequent success. He has served on the board of directors of the American Tinnitus Association. A strong advocate for the protection of communities from noise, he has testified at the state and federal levels and assisted in the passage of legislation regulating train noise in Indiana. Mr. Vite has also served the last four mayors in Elkhart as an advisor on noise abatement, and he has appeared on PBS’ “Ask an Expert” in regards to noise and its implication for health. He says, “I guarantee that communities which enact and enforce a strong noise ordinance will reap multiple benefits, including lower crime, increased property values, a healthier population, and better quality of life.”
