I really like the story of the person who just moved to a place on Throckmorton Ave. and called the police to report a noise (hum) from air handling equipment in a downtown area. All I can say is, why did he choose to live in a downtown area in the first place ? Air handling equipment is very noisy, that is why down towns are zoned commercial and most smart people would never consider living down there for a multitude of reasons. So, does this complainant want to rezone downtown to residential like the new age urbanists do, good luck on building more apartments in downtown areas, and the new imported residents will just have to "deal with it".
