Solana Beach City Council expands smoking ban

A stronger smoking ban was unanimously approved by the Solana Beach City Council June 24. Along with parks and beaches, the city now prohibits smoking in outdoor dining areas, outdoor bars, playgrounds, tot lots, farmer’s markets, street fairs and on or near the Coastal Rail Trail.

The ordinance also bans smoking within 20 feet of a public entry way, reduced the percentage of smoking rooms allowed in motels and hotels from 50 to 25 percent, and outlawed cigarette vending machines.

The city is also implementing a tobacco retailer license, which will require a retailer to get a license from the city to sell tobacco products, in addition to any other licenses required by the state.

A locally enforced tobacco retailer license has dramatically cut down on illegal cigarette sales to minors in other California cities.

The ordinance will go into effect 30 days from the second reading, which was expected at the council’s July 8 meeting.
