Reminder: Gas Leaf Blowers Are Illegal and Harmful

It’s tempting to use them, but gas leaf blowers operated within 500 feet of a resident and/or business are against the law.  Emissions from these blowers have been found to be harmful to the environment and residents, especially to young children, older residents and those with health issues. Since 2013, the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council has offered a mitigation plan to help end to this illegal practice.
