Proposed Smoking Protection Ordinance

Posted on December 15, 2016 at 5:00 PM by Margaret Livingston

Part of the City Manager’s Update of May 16, 2014

At the City Council meeting of May 20, 2014, staff will hold a study session with the Council on a proposed Smoking Pollution Protection ordinance. Staff will present feedback based on research, an online survey, and a community meeting held in February, and will seek City Council direction on the elements to be included in the proposed ordinance. Staff has also scheduled a community workshop meeting to discuss the Council’s direction and draft elements of the proposed ordinance on June 5, 2014 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at City Hall. Staff will be sending out mailers next week specifically to groups that this proposed ordinance will impact, including landlords and business owners, with notice of this meeting and to invite feedback. The City’s website contains information on the proposed ordinance, including background and a link to the survey and past presentations, at www.el-cerrito.org/smoking. For more information, contact Karen Pinkos at 215-4302
