 Beverly Hills Smoking Regulations

To protect and promote public health, the City of Beverly Hills regulates smoking in accordance with both state and local regulations. On October 3, 2017, the City Council approved an ordinance that prohibits smoking in all multi-unit housing in the City. For more information about the City's Smoke-Free Multi-Unit Housing Ordinance, please click here.

Title 5 Chapter 4 of the Beverly Hills Municipal Code regulates smoking in Beverly Hills.
