Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers Banned January 1-October 14

Residents are reminded that, effective January 1, 2022, the use of gas-powered blowers is prohibited from January 1 through October 14. The Town Council approved this ban in response to resident concerns about noise and other impacts of this type of landscaping equipment. The regulations exempt gas-powered snow blowers and sprayers. Montgomery County noise regulations also remain in effect in the Town.  

In February and March, the Town ‘s Climate and Environment Committee will undertake a community awareness campaign about the ban. The campaign will include community listserv and email messaging; door-to-door distribution of placards with information about the ban; lawn signs; outreach events to landscapers; and letters to landscapers who work in the Town.
