Time Warner Cable Arena to Become Smoke Free
Starting March 18, City-Owned Arena To Become Smoke-Free Government Grounds
March 9, 2015 – Time Warner Cable Arena will become one of the City of Charlotte’s smoke-free government grounds, beginning March 18. As a result, smoking will not be allowed anywhere on the Time Warner Cable Arena property (building, grounds, etc.). Additionally, the designated outdoor smoking areas currently available during Charlotte Hornets games and other arena events will also be eliminated. Per this policy, no lighted smoking products will be allowed in the building or on the grounds.
Since Time Warner Cable Arena is a city-owned building, it falls under the new smoke-free government grounds regulation. In October, an ordinance was adopted by the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners that bans smoking in county-, city- or town-owned buildings, vehicles and grounds in Mecklenburg County, the City of Charlotte and the six townships.
