Leaf Blower Madness !

Post  mp on Thu Dec 17, 2009 12:53 am

Can we do a neighborhood VOTE to ban leaf blowers?

Not only is it a waste of association money, itís very annoying. Those things have been going every day.

I wake up every day to a leaf blower as my alarm clock. Even if it is raining outside, the leaf blower is going. Since the leaves are wet, they are now bringing a more powerful and LOUDER leaf blower.

Please help.

What time do you hear the leaf blowers start?

What building and unit are you in?

The leaf blowers are running late morning, rain or shine. In the past few weeks they have been running almost every day.

I donít work a normal 9-5 job. I work 4 days a week in a 24/7 data center. On my days off I also work from home with my own small business.

I just wish we could get rid of the leaf blowers. Those things are loud and very annoying, especially since they are out there so many days each week.

In my opinion it is a waste of association money having leaf blowers running so much in our neighborhood. That money could be better used for something else.

I know I donít work normal hours like most people, so typical courtyard noise and activity is expected. The typical day time activity never bothers me. Itís all good, but the leaf blowers are a pain and a waste of money.

Thanks,

I'll double check but I don't believe we are charged any extra for the leaf blowers.

Thanks for looking into it for me.

If the leaf blower service is free, can you ask them to not do it so much. Maybe once a month, or once every few weeks?

Thanks,

Hi, I would disagree to pull back so much. I think it would be reasonable to do once a week. You don't want the leaves collecting so much that it becomes a much bigger, longer job when they do do it, as well as you want the gutters/streets kept clear. Besides, it looks nicer.

The leaf blowers make to much noise having them running so much. This needs to stop. They were out there again today.

Iím thinking about filing a noise ordinance complaint to the City of San Jose. I donít know what the noise ordinance laws are, but I want to find out if I can get leaf blowers banned form our neighborhood.

There are much quieter ways for the leaves to be cleaned up.

I work from home several times a week and the leaf blowing does happen very frequently. It would be nice if they can do it less frequently or reserve its use for the afternoons. Alternately try to interchange the blower use with the old fashion rake and broom to sweep up the leaves.
