    Ban leafblowers. Period. The service is unnecessary, loud, blows dust, and there are effective substitutes (brooms/rakes) when really needed. Climate change requires less consumption. Electric insignificantly decreases noise. Blowers add to overall maintenance noise, and different than mowers are used higher & longer. The high pitch & constant volume changes are grating. Very obvious during my 3 mos WFH, where blowers were more grating than construction. Also, increase code enforcement.
