Glenwood Springs To Consider Downtown Smoking Ban

September 3, 2015

A proposed smoking ban in Glenwood Springs is up for debate on Thursday.

The City Council will consider new rules that could ban smoking altogether in the city’s tourist-heavy downtown. The local ordinance could move smokers off of sidewalks.

A statewide ban already prohibits smoking inside restaurants and bars. 

The smoking ban is one idea the city is considering as a way to deal with homeless people congregating downtown. Glenwood’s police department has recently increased officers’ foot and bike patrols in the same area.
