A Santa Fe city councilor wants to ban smoking in parks and at the historic plaza area.

Councilor Ron Trujillo has taken some criticism for the idea, which would also include a ban on electronic cigarettes and chewing tobacco.

He told the Santa Fe New Mexican that he is open to find a comprisable solution.

A public hearing is scheduled for next month.
