Leaf Blower Laws

As of December 22, 2016, Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers were banned from use within Sonoma City Limits.  Battery and electric-powered leaf blowers are permitted under specific conditions.

Suggested Best Practices for the use of Leaf Blowers

  • Leaf Blowers should not be operated when people are in the area. If you see someone coming towards you on the sidewalk, cease and wait until they pass. If you are in a business park or parking lot, move to another area.
  • Personal Protection equipment is recommended when operating Leaf Blowers.
  • Debris should not be blown into the street or onto neighboring properties.
