They will never enforce it. They have rules already about no pets in the parks yet every weekend there are dozens of people who take their dogs to the parks that my kids play in and use it as a toilet and dont clean it up. If they can not enforce what is already in place what good is additional laws? This is just one of those feel good measures so that council memebers can say they did something....Take a trip to Alhambra Park on any Saturday and see how many people actually follow the current laws, disgusting.

i agree they must enforce this new smoking ban law specially in alhambra take a look at the small shoping center on valley and almansor st a great amount of people smoke on the curve outside the stores and out side the restaurant i see parents with kids wlking the sidewalk and they have to inhale their discusting smoke city council should take a look at that to protect alhambra residents from second hand smoke. thank you.

There should be no smoking in or on any city owned/leased property. Such restrictions must also apply to sidewalks, cars, trucks ect.

Second and Third hand smoke harms pets and "rug rats." If you care keep your smoking outside. Thank You.
