A proposal to restrict smoking in public parks tops the agenda for next Tuesday’s meeting of the Stanton City Council.
Although the details of the proposal were not available today (Thursday), the justification for the planned ordinance includes this statement. “The Community Services Department’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of residents. In that effort and in joining with hundreds of other California cities and counties, this ordinance will implement reasonable restrictions regarding the location and manner of smoking in recreational areas.”
Huntington Beach last year banned smoking in all parks, wetlands and beaches.
If approved on Tuesday (July 10), the ordinance would come back to the July 24 for final approval and adoption.
The council meets in its chambers in City Hall, 7800 Katella Ave., at 6:30 p.m.
