New Rules for leaf blowers and unpaved parking

Improve air quality, reduce health risks, meet federal standards

 

 

GOODYEAR, AZGoodyear adopted a new Dust Control Ordinance to comply with the Maricopa Association of Governments’ plan to reduce harmful particulate emissions by five percent per year until our region meets federal air quality standards.

 

Leaf Blowers: Use only on stabilized surfaces, such as asphalt, concrete and landscaped areas with decomposed granite. Do not blow grass clippings, leaves or other debris onto public roads.

 

Parking on Dirt Lots or Unpaved Roads: Property owners may not allow vehicles to park or drive on vacant dirt lots or unpaved roads, and may install fencing and driveway barricades to keep vehicles off unpaved areas. Owners may also post no trespassing signs to prevent unauthorized use of the unpaved areas of their property.

 

Penalty: Violations are a Class 3 misdemeanor, carrying fines of up to $500, one-year probation, and imprisonment of up to 30 days.
