City Manager Reports
Discuss zoning ordinance restrictions on tobacco sales near sensitive uses, available policy options and impact of each alternative on American Lung Association local rating. Public comment was divided between proponents of current regulations and Shell Station operator and employee to exempt them from restriction of tobacco sales. Council comments appeared to favor an ordinance change including a service station exemption. If no changes are enacted, the applicant can pursue a Zoning Text Amendment to allow tobacco sales.
