Environmental Advisory Commission (EAC) of the City of Pasadena

The Environmental Advisory Commission (EAC) of the City of Pasadena will be hosting a Special Meeting and public forum focused on the use of two-stroke engines in landscape equipment in the City. The EAC has researched the history around the use of two-stroke engines in landscape equipment throughout the City, the record of public comments submitted to the City Council on this subject, identified ordinances related to landscape equipment in jurisdictions throughout California, including our neighboring cities, and gathered scientific data associated with the use of two-stroke engines in landscape equipment.

At the public forum, a brief presentation will be shared summarizing the findings of the completed research. The forum will then be open to pre-registered members of the business and resident community to submit comments related to the use of two-stroke engines in landscape equipment. The EAC strongly encourages those interested in submitting comments to submit formal written comments for inclusion in the package of materials that will be shared with the Public Safety Committee of the City Council. Please submit all written comments to Ariel Hudgins via email at ahudgins@cityofpasadena.net. If you wish your comments to be read aloud during the meeting, please submit them using the form located at http://www.cityofpasadena.net/commissions/public-comment. Comments will also be accepted during the meeting via the Zoom Q&A feature.

Please note that the EAC is an advisory body only; no decisions or recommendations will be made. All information gathered to date, and the written comments shared with the EAC on this subject will be provided to City decision-makers, beginning with the Public Safety Committee of the City Council.
