Pound Ridge CALM has gained some ground in our mission to make the town more quiet, peaceful, and healthy so that all residents might better enjoy their property and homes, and the outdoors in general.
The Town Board heard our concerns and made changes to the regulation on gas-powered leaf blower use which now prohibits the use of gas-powered leaf blowers by commercial users from May 15 through October 15.
