On November 3, 2015, the Littleton City Council passed an ordinance making Downtown Littleton a smoke free zone. The law became effective January 1, 2016, but some residents and visitors are still unaware that smoking is prohibited, including the use of electronic smoking devices, “vaping” devices, etc. Smoking is prohibited except on roof-tops and back patios where owners allow, in private parking lots, and public alleys 15 feet from any entrance. Littleton is introducing the “Let’s Clear the Air” campaign. The city will distribute window decals and drink coasters to local businesses. “No Smoking” signs will soon include a blue “Let’s Clear the Air” message. The goal is to make Downtown Littleton a healthier place for everyone.
“As a downtown shop owner, we welcome everyone to our store,” Workhorse 45 Owner Shane George said. “I appreciate it when those who want to smoke pay attention to the new zones and don’t smoke outside our door. I think the city’s new “Let’s Clear the Air” campaign is perfect. It’s a positive message for all, and at the end of the day, we all love Downtown Littleton and just want to enjoy its charm.”
