Leaf Blower Regulations in Newton, Massachusetts

The use and overuse of leaf blowers in Newton is having a serious, detrimental effect on the health and quality of life of many Newton citizens. We, the undersigned, call upon our Aldermen, to legislate more regulations on leaf blowers in Newton.

Why is this important?

Our health is at stake. Leaf blowers are deleterious for many reasons: the horrendous noise, the carcinogenic emissions, and, the stirred -up particulate matter. There is a reason why many communities around the country are banning leaf blowers, and, not other landscaping equipment.
In November, 2015 the Newton Aldermen will be voting on an ordinance to limit the use of leaf blowers. It is crucial that citizens sign this petition and write their Aldermen, now!
