I was told that the city of DelMar has a bylaw that doesn't allow smoking outside even on your own property! so why do you think they would have a choke,n puke like in n out at the track?Smoking Restrictions
Is smoking allowed on the beaches and public parks?
In October 2009, the Del Mar City Council voted to amend its Smoking and Tobacco Regulations (DMMC Chapter 11.08). The revised ordinance bans smoking in many public and private properties. The following is a brief overview of the City’s smoking and tobacco regulations and lists the locations where smoking is prohibited in Del Mar.
Is smoking banned throughout the City of Del Mar?
No. The ordinance bans smoking in select locations. The purpose of the regulations is to limit the public’s exposure to second hand smoke in those areas where people work and congregate.
Where is smoking prohibited?
The locations where smoking is prohibited are listed below:
Enclosed public places - such as stores, restaurants, churches and offices open to the public
Places of employment
Parks, beaches and seawalls and their street sidewalks, stairs and cul-de-sacs
Taxi Cabs operating in Del Mar
Child Care facilities
All sidewalks and those segments of any street lined with a sidewalk
All portions of outdoor seating areas of any bar or restaurant and within reasonable distance of those seating areas, including: adjacent sidewalks and/or streets and roads
All public plazas and public and semi-public spaces identified in an approved Specific Plan
All outdoor arenas, stadiums, and amphitheaters; including their bleachers and grandstands
All public transportation station facilities; such as train stations and bus shelters
Any property zoned as Public Facility (PF)
Can I smoke in my house or apartment?
Yes. The only limitation is a prohibition on smoking in a home that is used for a child day-care facility.
Where else can I legally smoke within the City of Del Mar?
A personal, private office where the public is not invited to do business and where there are no employees.
Sections of streets that do not contain public sidewalks and are not adjacent to a beach or park.
What should I do if I witness someone violating the ordinance?
If you are at a business, store or restaurant, please ask an employee to enforce the ordinance. If you are walking along a sidewalk or in another public place where smoking is banned, you can ask the smoker to extinguish their cigarette, cigar or pipe. If you are uncomfortable doing so, or if the person refuses your request, you may contact a City Code Enforcement Officer at (858) 755-9313 or the Community Services Department at (858) 755-1556.
What is the consequence if I violate the ordinance?
The ordinance provides a variety of methods of enforcement ranging from warnings to fines upwards of $1,000.00. In addition to these fines, the owner, manager, or operator of a business who allows smoking in a prohibited location may have their permits or licenses to operate suspended
It's a shame that as the day progresses at Del Mar, there is less and less enforcement of this in the grandstand.
