South Pasadena News and Updates

On September 1, 2021, City Council adopted an ordinance banning the use of gas-powered leaf blowers in the City. The enforcement of gas-powered leaf blowers was set to begin on October 1, 2022. As the City explores new avenues for resources, incentives, and education, enforcement has been delayed. The ordinance is still in effect and will be enforced at a later date.
