The Board of Supervisors voted 11-0 Tuesday to approve legislation that finalizes the new type of no-smoking signs property owners will have to install as a result of previously adopting legislation expanding no-smoking areas in San Francisco.
Supervisor Eric Mar’s legislation clarifies signage rules. The previously approved legislation required prominent signs to be posted at each entrance of a building and within 10 feet of the door, but the legislation approved Tuesday makes changes to the sign’s language.
The law had said the signs must read: “Smoking only at the curb or at least 15 ft. from exits, entrances, and operable windows.”
Now it's required the language add the word “vents” so that the signs read: “Smoking only 1) at the curb or 2) if no curb, at least 15 ft. from entrances, exits, operable windows, and vents.”
