In hopes of seeing smoking banned in all public places, Councilor Greg Evans is asking the Eugene City Council to look into banning smoking in the city’s downtown area. On Wednesday, the City Council will have its first discussion over the matter.

The city already has a smoking ban in workplaces and outside of entrances of buildings.

Eugene is Oregon’s second largest city with a metro area of over 350,000. It is home to the University of Oregon.
