(1) A state or federal agency has adopted a different standard or rule than that prescribed in this chapter and has so pre-empted the regulation of noise from a particular source as to render this subchapter inapplicable thereto; or
(2) The Town Council has determined that, by reason of public acceptance of the activity producing a particular noise, such noise is deemed acceptable to the residents of the town.
