BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)– An outdoor smoking ban in Boulder would mean no smoking on the city’s municipal campus downtown.

That includes any public space downtown like Central Park and the Farmer’s Market and would include people sitting in parked cars within designated no smoking areas.

Boulder City Manager Jane Brautigam said she’s proposing the ban because of concerns about second hand smoke.

The Boulder City Council will take public comment on the outdoor smoking ban proposal on Jan. 21.

The public smoking ban on the Pearl Street Mall went into effect last January. Officers began enforcement in April. First and second penalties can carry a fine. A third conviction in two years could mean 90 days in jail.
