What about policies for retail tobacco businesses?

The focus of this effort is to reduce secondhand smoke exposure in multi-unit housing and other public areas within Milpitas. However, as part of a separate effort, City staff from Planning and Recreation Services is developing a licensing program for tobacco retailers and conducting additional community outreach to educate youth, teens, and parents about the health hazards of smoking and vaping. Staff is also coordinating with the County consultant to develop regulations aimed at restricting the sale of flavored tobacco products to teens and discouraging the overall use of all tobacco products.
