(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, no person shall engage in or permit any person to be engaged in construction activities in any zone other than on weekdays between the hours of seven a.m. and six p.m.  A person may, however, engage in construction activities on one or two family dwellings, convents or rectories, which are classified in occupancy group J-3 as defined by section 27-266 of the administrative code, on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of ten a.m. and four p.m.  Such construction activities, however, must be located a distance of three hundred or more feet from a house of worship.
