Program Goals

San Leandro's goal, through education and partnership, is to have all tobacco retailers in San Leandro in compliance with state law and the city's local ordinance before its effective date of August 15, 2018. To establish a partnership with businesses in San Leandro around the new Ordinance, two information sessions scheduled at City Hall took place for tobacco retailers.
