City of Fremont Considers Tobacco Retail License Program


On May 21, 2019, the Fremont City Council heard a proposal from the Human Relations Commission recommending the establishment of a Tobacco Retail License program. At that meeting, the Council directed City staff to conduct further outreach to stakeholders before the topic returns to Council later this summer.

The proposed Tobacco Retail License program for Fremont would require retailers, who sell tobacco products, to acquire an annual Tobacco Retail License from the City. Policies associated with the Tobacco Retail License may include a ban on all flavored tobacco products, and a set minimum pack size and/or set minimum price per pack. The goal of these policies is to discourage young adults from buying tobacco products. As of May 2019, 158 California municipalities have implemented Tobacco Retail License programs including ordinances restricting the sale of flavored tobacco products and devices.

The City will be holding a community meeting focused on explaining the proposed Tobacco Retail License program and receiving input from the community. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at 7 p.m. in the Large Fire Training Room, rear entrance of Building A, Fremont City Hall, located at 3300 Capitol Ave. Feedback can also be provided online at Fremont Open City Hall.
