San Mateo Mayor Brandt Grotte is planning to ask the rest of the city council to ban leaf blowers in San Mateo.
According to an article in the San Mateo Daily Journal, the city’s Community Development Department is currently seeking council direction regarding municipal code and the use of leaf blowers with a focus on reducing carbon emissions and noise.
Should San Mateo ban leaf blowers, the city would join the ranks of Burlingame, which to restrict the use of leaf blowers by day, hour and zone.
