Smoking ban goes into effect in San Dieguito River Park

A new no-smoking policy is now in place for the San Dieguito River Park, which stretches from the gateway at the lagoon in Del Mar to the crest of Volcan Mountain.

The Board of Directors of the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority approved the policy, following the lead of 14 other cities in San Diego County. The authority is a multi-jurisdictional agency formed to plan, create, preserve and enhance the San Dieguito River Valley Regional Open Space Park.

New signs will be posted and information about the policy included at already existing kiosks.

The Witch Creek Fire in October of 2007 burned more than 62 percent of the park, most of the damage having occurred in Rancho Santa Fe, Lake Hodges, Escondido, Rancho Bernardo and the San Pasqual Valley to Ramona.

According the a news release from the park, cigarettes comprise the main source of litter. There is no formal enforcement in place at this point.
