12/22/2020: Gas Powered Leaf Blowers Prohibited on Residential Lots: Ordinance Goes Into Effect January 1, 2021 - Electric and Battery-Powered Leaf Blowers Allowed 8 AM to 5 PM

New Monterey City Code Ordinance 22-18.1 takes effect January 1, 2021 that prohibits gas-powered leaf blowers on residential lots. Electric and battery-powered leaf blowers are still permitted between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The Monterey City Council approved the recommendation by the Community Development Department staff after much community discussion around noise disruption and air pollution emitted from gas blowers in neighborhoods.
