New Smoke Shop Ordinance
On July 28, 2014, the Haltom City City Council held a workshop in regards to increasing restrictions on smoke shops and directed the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) to draft a zoning ordinance amendment to further restrict smoke shops for the promotion of public health, safety, and welfare. The P&Z held a public meeting on August 12th and another on September 9th to draft the zoning ordinance amendment; and on September 23rd, the P&Z recommended that the City Council approve the drafted regulations on smoke shops. Subsequently, on October 27, 2014, the Haltom City City Council adopted Ordinance No. 2014-032-03, which further restricts locations for smoke shops within Haltom City.
