A new no-smoking sign requirement is being proposed by Supervisor Eric Mar.
Mar had previously successfully passed and won approval at the board legislation that increased the number of places were people cannot light up and stipulated non-smoking signs were required. On Monday, the Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee will hold a hearing on legislation proposed by Mar that would clarify signage rules.
The previously approved legislation required prominent signs posted at each entrance of a building and within 10 feet of the door. What’s being changed is the language.
The existing law says the signs must read: “Smoking only at the curb or at least 15 ft. from exits, entrances, and operable windows.”
Mar’s proposed legislation would tweak that language and adding the word “vents” to require the signs to read: “Smoking only 1) at the curb or 2) if no curb, at least 15 ft. from entrances, exits, operable windows, and vents.”
The board’s City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee meets Monday at 10:30 a.m. at City Hall in Room 263.
