Smoking Changes Possible in College Station

Soon, College Station's elected leaders will vote on a proposed re-working of the city's smoking ordinance.

Under the proposal, which will be voted on January 22 following a public hearing, smoking would no longer be allowed at College Station bars or within 10 feet of the entrances.

Also, smoking would be banned completely at restaurants as opposed to the current 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. allowance in place now.

You also couldn't smoke at a workplace, or within 20 feet of a public place that's not a bar.

For more information on the proposed ordinance click on the link below. That will take you to the agenda from College Station's last city council meeting. On Page 25 of that document, you'll find the information on the proposed changes, including the ordinance the council will vote on January 22.
