City Earns "A" Grade in Anti-Smoking Report

Post Date:02/06/2019 5:20 PM

The City of South Pasadena has earned an “A” grade in the American Lung Association’s 2018 annual report, one of just 10 L.A. County cities to earn the distinction.

 The Lung Association grades cities and counties in four areas: smoke-free outdoor air, smoke-free housing, reducing sales of tobacco products, and addressing emerging issues such as “vaping” and flavored tobacco products.

South Pasadena adopted an aggressive anti-smoking ordinance that took effect in June, 2018, which banned smoking on all City property and facilities, transit stops and stations, places of employment, health care facilities, non-enclosed areas open to the public, multi-unit rental housing (both indoors and in outdoor common areas), and all public sidewalks, walkways, parkways, curbs and gutters.
