The use of Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers is against the Law

LAPD has recently issued a citation for the repeated use of illegal leaf blowers on E. Channel Road. They are bad for everyone's health and the environment. Users and their employers may face fines of $100 for each use according to Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) 112 (c). Some residents in our neighborhood have pooled their funds and purchased a legal electric leaf blower for about $100. For additional information please click on

We've posted the Minutes from our October 13, 2011 meeting on the PPCC website.  Check out the latest news on:
