Help Reduce Noise Pollution! Sign This Petition! Please help in signing and sharing this petition to insist that FDOT or Developers install a noise barrier to maintain a quality of life for homeowners in the Montevilla Subdivision and several other communities in the Bartram Park area! Homeowners are experiencing excessive noise pollution since the 9B extension was opened, and as the traffic level begins to increase with the opening of the Durbin Park Shopping Center within the next few months, so will the noise pollution.
