Tobacco use will be permitted in a limited number of tobacco-use areas, so designated for a period of not less than 12 months from the date of enactment of this policy. The Tobacco Task Force shall evaluate and review annually, if needed, the suitability of the designated tobacco-use areas. The locations selected, to the greatest extent possible, are situated far enough away from buildings, other structures and walkways to minimize air quality concerns relating to those structures.

Further, no designated smoking areas will be located immediately adjacent to buildings where CPRIT research is being conducted, including adjacent sidewalks, parking lots, walkways and attached parking structures. In any event, the designated tobacco-use areas will comply with Texas Administrative Code, Title 25 Health Services, Part 11, Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), Chapter 703, Grants for Cancer Prevention and Research, Section 703.20.
