Dear Councilmembers,
As I am unable to attend this week’s 2020 goal setting meeting, I am writing to request that you include in your annual goals the passing of a ban on gasoline-powered blowers in Menlo Park.
There is ample evidence that these dangerously loud machines pose serious health risks, pollute our air, and emit greenhouse gases. A ban would return peace to our neighborhoods, protect the health of our residents and professional gardeners, and mitigate threats to our warming climate.
More than 25 cities throughout the state have already banned gas blowers, including Los Altos, Palo Alto, and Portola Valley. It’s time for Menlo Park to do the same. I urge you to add this objective to your list for the coming year.
Respectfully,
Kathy Switky
Nash Avenue
