A proposal to ban smoking in all city parks, sports fields, recreation areas and associated parking lots in Victorville, Calif. unanimously passed its first reading last night and now awaits a second vote before being implemented.
Should it pass its second vote, something that has not yet been scheduled but could come as soon as the council’s Feb. 3 meeting, the ban would go into effect 30 days following its passage.
Both the minutes from the meeting and a report from the Victorville Daily Press confirm that there was no public comment in opposition to the proposal. The only change was that vaping was taken out of the proposal so that it could be revisited at a later date.
Victorville is home to just over 121,000 people and is located approximately 80 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
