Santa Monica

Councilmember Kevin McKeown


Leafblowers are a noisy nuisance, but they also blow unhealthful particles ranging from animal fecal matter to toxic mold spores into the air and into our lungs.  One property may look somewhat neater for having blown trash onto the neighbor’s, but later in the week the neighbor’s  gardener blows it all back.

Based on my proposal, we replaced Santa Monica’s unenforceable old law with a new one that will work.

RESOURCES:  From the City website, what the new law says and how it will be enforced.

...and here’s an updated report on how the new enforcement process is working so far!
