Menlo Park smoking ban goes into effect Nov. 29

Changes pass final hearing

With zero discussion, the Menlo Park City Council waived a second reading of the revised smoking ordinance last week, thus making the new laws official. The changes go into effect Nov. 29.

Major revisions include no more smoking in outdoor areas like Cafe Borrone's patio unless the business owner chooses to set aside a designated, unenclosed space for smokers.

While residents can still smoke within their own apartments, or while walking in the street, common-use areas of multi-unit housing will become smoke-free zones, according to City Attorney Bill McClure.
