The City Council took action on this issue at the request of Tualatin Together whose goal is to bring community leaders together to plan for drug and alcohol prevention for youth. Implementation is scheduled for May 31, 2016.

Further information regarding implementation will be posted on the City website www.tualatinoregon.gov/communityservices/smoke-free-city-spaces-policy. Check back for more updates!
