by Phyllis Theermann July 14, 2017 leaf blowers Newton Noise Ordinance
A group of citizens created a working group called “Newton Safe and Sound” to regulate leaf blowers in Newton. They felt that leaf blowers contributed to the degradation of their environment and decreased the quality of their lives.
On January 17th of this year, Newton’s City Council passed a New Noise Ordinance regulating leaf blowers. It allows only ONE electric blower per property from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and all year all leaf blowers must be no louder than 65 decibels. This was a huge step for Newton.
