No-smoking signs absent on Park Street

The Alameda Sun received a copy of this letter addressed to Alex Nguyen, assistant city manager.

 

Alex:

Last Monday just after 7 p.m. my wife, Linda, and I went to Park Street. We had dinner at Pho Sinh and dessert at Tucker’s. As we were returning to our car we saw two men smoking at Santa Clara and Park Street.

We really need better no-smoking signage that is visible after dark and far more ubiquitous than what has been distributed so far.

I have yet to see any City of Alameda sandwich-board signs along Park or Webster streets advertising the secondhand smoke ban, which I suggested when the City Council passed the no-smoking sign regulations.

Will we have to stencil signs on the sidewalks ourselves to get something adequate done?
