Sidewalks in downtown Littleton will be smoke-free starting in 2016.
On Nov. 3, the City Council voted 4-3 to ban outdoor smoking in public areas, including all sidewalks, a block north and south of Main Street between South Santa Fe Drive and Rio Grande Street. Smoking would be allowed on rooftops, rear patios and in parking lots.
The ordinance also classifies electronic cigarettes and vape pens as tobacco products. The restrictions will take effect Jan. 1.
