A neighborhood board has voted to pass a resolution that proposes two-hour time limits on loud noises, including drumming and chanting, at the Occupy Wall Street protest site in New York City.

The community board that represents lower Manhattan passed the resolution Tuesday night. The resolution also proposes off-site portable bathrooms funded by local donors and the removal of some police barricades. The resolution asks all parties to come together to address the issues.

Speakers at the meeting included residents fed up with the noise and filth at the half-acre Zuccotti Park and protesters who stressed the good that the movement is trying to accomplish.

The park's owner, Brookfield Office Properties, tried to push the protesters out two weeks ago to clean it but backed off after a public outcry.
