Mill Valley joins the county and eight other cities and towns in regulating smoking in multifamily units.
City of Mill Valley adopts house smoking ban
The ban will completely restrict smoking — including vapor, e-cigarettes and medical cannabis — in new and existing apartment complexes, condominiums and townhouses, including an owner or renters’ private balcony, porch or deck. Each property could, however have a designated smoking area, which needs to meet a list of seven criteria, or be approved by the city.
The Mill Valley City Council adopted an ordinance to ban smoking in multifamily housing. It will go into effect 30 days after adoption. For new units, the rules will be effective immediately while existing units will have a 12-month transition period.
