UPDATE: San Francisco Ordinance Prohibiting Smoking in Enclosed Areas and Certain Unenclosed Areas

BOMA San Francisco Members:

We have recently posted information on the blog in regard to new law that has amended the San Francisco Health Code to prohibit smoking in certain enclosed areas, certain unenclosed areas and sports stadiums.

On July 13, 2010, the San Francsico Board of Supervisors passed a 'clean-up' measure that finalized necessary language changes to the the original ordinance.  Please click here to read the Smoking Prohibition Signage Requirement Ordinance and here for the Legislative Digest.  The changes affect the signage language that will now require posted signs at the entrances of all buildings to read:
  • "Smoking only 1) at the curb or 2) if no curb, at least 15 ft. from entrances, exits, operable windows, and vents."
 If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ken Cleaveland, Director of Government and Public Affairs for BOMA San Francisco at and John Bozeman, Legislative Assistant for BOMA San Francisco at with your comments.
