Quiet Montclair. One of our strongest allies, Quiet Montclair grew out of efforts begun in 2019 by a small group of residents frustrated by the noise and pollution created by gas leaf blowers.

Please note: Quiet Montclair has generously agreed to share some of its original website content with Huntington Calm.
