The use of any smoking instrument or device is prohibited in all of the public spaces within the downtown core, unless a private establishment has chosen to opt-out of the rule. If a private establishment is approved to opt-out of the rule, some or all of the public right-of-way immediately adjacent to its property could be exempt from the rule.
If a place of employment property owner outside of the downtown core would like to make the public spaces immediately adjacent to their property smoke-free, they may request to do so. This would prohibit using any smoking instrument or device immediately adjacent to their property.
These options are in addition to the current rules which includes smoke-free parks; areas outside government owned facilities that are within 25 feet of doors, entries, or pathways thereto, such as patios, walkways, and sidewalks; and areas within 10 feet of any other public doorway. A smoking instrument or device is defined as cigarettes, cigarillos, cigars, clove cigarettes, e-cigarettes, pipes, and other related products.
