Redondo Beach has very engaged and educated residents. When a resident is unhappy with a city situation or feels they see something unsafe or unhealthy, they either complain on Social Media or they engage neighbors and go to City Council to make changes. The latter group is successful in making changes happen.

The Ban has always focused on voluntary compliance but there is some consequence to non-compliance. Here is an update of the actions taken and the next steps towards Leaf Blower Ban compliance.
