Smoking ban extended

Smoking is now banned in the Village West public plaza, at the Claremont Depot and on the small 2nd floor balcony in the parking structure on First Street. The city council voted 3 to 2 in favor of the ban at last night's council meeting.

Smoking is still permitted in the walkways going into the Village West public plaza, the adjacent sidewalks and patio areas of restaurants like Casa Moreno and The Back Abbey that are in the plaza.

Smoking is already not permitted in city parks, the Claremont Wilderness Park, on Thompson Creek trail and near the entrances of government buildings.

No smoking signs will be posted in the areas announcing the new regulation. Smokers caught breaking the law are subject to fines.
