Law | Portland, OR Ban Hearing

On Wednesday, Portland City Council will hold a hearing discuss a city-wide smoking ban in public parks.

The hearing comes in advance of a vote by the City Council that is scheduled for February 18. If it passes, the smoking ban would begin in July.

The new law would expand existing smoking restrictions to more than 200 public parks facilities, trails, golf courses, recreation areas and community centers.

The hearing takes place at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday at Portland City Hall.
