“A picture from an Elmwood Road teardown that began at 7:08am this morning! ┬áNever mind that leaf blowers can’t begin before 7:30am, but excavators can demolish at the crack of dawn on a holiday? Maybe we need a new town ordinance?”

    I, as well as most of the Wellesley residents I know, completely agree with the ban on leaf blowers and an ordinance to limit the start time of construction/demolition. Can we get this put on a ballot again??!

    A ban on gas powered leaf blowers should be voted into effect in Wellesley. Not only do they cause most of the noise pollution in Wellesley, they cause significant air pollution.
