Foster City’s residents to comment on smoking rules
February 18, 2014, 05:00 AM By Aimee Lewis Strain Bay

Foster City smokers might soon have some new rules to follow, as the city is considering whether changes should be made to its smoking ordinance, which hasn’t been updated in 18 years.

A study session is being held Feb. 24 to encourage an open dialogue on the matter and to allow residents to weigh in on what changes they think should be made, according to city officials. A previous study session was held in September.

In 1996, Foster City updated its smoking ordinance to prohibit the sale of cigarettes in vending machines and self-service displays.

The city has further restricted smoking in some outdoor restaurant seating areas and has sought the public’s voluntary compliance in not smoking in city parks and at city-sponsored events such as the annual Art and Wine Festival and the Fourth of July celebration.

The study session is 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24 in the Foster City Council Chambers, 620 Foster City Blvd.

No action will be taken at the meeting, but the feedback will help city officials direct staff on how to craft a smoking ordinance to be considered by the council at a future date.

Do you think electronic cigarettes should be prohibited in the same places cigarettes are?

Yes, we don't know the dangers
No, they are harmless to others
Maybe, but they're still safe
We should do what we can to encourage use since they're less harmfull than cigarettes
Who cares, they're lame
