After passing an “emergency ordinance” to temporarily restrict flavored tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, the council has approved extending the ordinance for over 10 months, ending on October 7, 2020.
The City Council also approved an extension of Via Princessa, which is set to connect the street to Golden Valley Road in Canyon Country.
On October 8, the Santa Clarita City Council approved an ordinance prohibiting the sale of flavored tobacco products as well as preventing new businesses from selling flavored tobacco products.
During Tuesday evening’s meeting, the city council voted on a 10 month extension on the ordinance currently in place, preventing the sale of flavored tobacco products.
One private Santa Clarita resident was able to voice their opinion on the ban, claiming that the recent vaping-related deaths in the Los Angeles County were due in part to the tobacco products not bought in a regulated store or over the counter.
“Please reconsider and just stick to the business of the city and not the flavors (of tobacco),” the resident said during the meeting.
The city council unanimously voted yes on extending the ordinance for another 10 months, ending on October 7, 2020
Via Princessa Extension
The city council also approved a land purchase to expand Via Princessa to connect the existing roadway to Golden Valley Road.
The expansion would open up new travel options between the current roadway in Canyon Country and Golden Valley Road near the new Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
The land parcel is reported to be used “for road right-of-way and temporary grading and construction easements,” according to city documents.
The total cost of the land purchase is expected to cost approximately $330,000.
