The City of St. Albert is seeking the public's input on whether changes should be made to the City's Smoking Bylaw. An online survey is available until April 1.
"St. Albert City Council is considering changes to the Smoking Bylaw, including if the smoking and vaping of tobacco should be fully prohibited in outdoor public areas," the City of St. Albert said in a media release. "Currently within St. Albert, as long as it's prohibited for any other reason through provincial or municipal legislation, public smoking and vaping of tobacco is permitted on park trails, in public parks and on public sidewalks."
The City aims to educate residents on the current Smoking Bylaw and understand the public's viewpoint on the Smoking Bylaw to help inform Council about any potential changes to the bylaw.
The survey can be completed by visiting this link. The results will be presented to St. Albert City Council at the May 13 Governance, Priorities and Finance Committee meeting, and will be shared with the public on the City's website.
