City of Manhattan Beach CA smoke-free beaches extension


Chapter: South Bay
State: CA
Country: USA
Theme: Plastic Pollution
Completion Date: August 02 2011
Status: Victory

The City of Manhattan Beach voted unanimously to extend its smoke-free beaches and parks policy to include its bustling pedestrian Strand and Greenbelt. This is significant not only for residents and visitors in Manhattan Beach, but also for the region and beyond as smoke-free beach policies to date have generally excluded areas adjacent to beaches, which often end up becoming the de facto smoking areas.
