The Malibu City Council is considering banning smoking at the temporary skatepark and other outdoor areas.

Malibu’s municipal code already prohibits smoking in many public areas to protect “the right of residents and visitors … to be free from unwelcome secondhand smoke.”

However, the code does not address smoking in city parks and open spaces. The code also is silent on vaping and the use of e-cigs in areas where smoking is prohibited, like dining areas, the Malibu Pier, beaches, public events and meetings of city bodies.
