Title
An Ordinance to Add a New Chapter 64 to Title VI (Food and Health) of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Ordinance No. ORD-14-03)
Memorandum

The version of the ordinance amendment before you tonight for second reading contains the changes listed below.

First, due to the fact that the AAATA property consists of two parcels (328 S. Fifth Ave. and 331 S. Fourth Ave.) it was necessary to make changes to Section 6:1(4)(a) to clarify the areas where smoking is prohibited. The areas are as follows: (i) within 20 feet of entrances, windows, and ventilation systems of Blake Transit Center (BTC is on the parcel at 328 S. Fifth Ave.); (ii) on the property adjacent to S. Fourth Ave. and S. Fifth Ave. on which public buses are operated by the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (buses are operated on both the parcel at 328 S. Fifth Ave and the parcel at 331 S. Fourth Ave.); and, (iii) on all sidewalks adjacent to boarding areas on S. Fourth Avenue between Liberty Street and William Street.

Second, Section 6:1(4)(b) was changed to reduce the area around bus stops where smoking is prohibited to within 10 feet (the previous version was 20 feet).

Third, Section 6:2(3) is deleted. The prohibition in subsection (1) suffices.

The proposed amendment is sponsored by Council Member Warpehoski.
