Garfield - The city has introduced regulations regarding unmanned aircraft, commonly known as drones, in the hopes of protecting privacy and for safety reasons. The new city law will only permit hobby drone operators to fly their aircraft over their own properties and above 400 feet. Flying above other residences, commercial zones areas, roadways, government or public buildings and property, and parks throughout the city will be banned. Exceptions will be granted to emergency personnel and non-profits, for scientific research and at athletic events, and private company owners within their own borders. All drones will have to be flown above 400 feet, which is inline with the Federal Aviation Administrations rules.
