More restrictions on smoking could be coming to Sioux Falls if the city council signs off on a proposed new smoking ban being introduced Tuesday.

The proposal, if passed, would not allow smoking at all city owned property in Sioux Falls. That would include:

  • Sioux Falls parks (not just during youth activities)
  • Outside the Sanford Premier Center
  • Golf courses
  • Bike trails
  • Major festivals such as Jazzfest & Riverfest.
  • Library grounds

And it's not just cigarettes and cigars. The ban would also prohibit smokeless tobacco and all e-cigarettes.

The council will hear the proposal Tuesday.
