Clay County Citizens Breathe Clean Air

Clean Air in Clay County

Clay County Public Health Center recently conducted an assessment on existing tobacco and nicotine-related ordinances in Clay County, Missouri municipalities.  The project was funded by MODHSS Chronic Disease Prevention Program (CDPP) #AOC17380024 . Key findings of the assessment include:

All schools in Clay County, Missouri have tobacco-free building and campus policies. North Kansas City, Kearney, Kansas City, Gladstone, Liberty and Excelsior Springs have all passed a Clean Indoor Air Ordinance (CIA). In the KC Metro area outside of Clay County, CIA Ordinances have been passed in Lee’s Summit, Independence, Grandview, and Blue Springs.

86.3% of Clay County residents reside in cities that have CIA Ordinances in place. To reach 90% of residents covered, passing an ordinance in unincorporated Clay County or a combination of smaller municipalities would achieve this goal. Liberty, Gladstone, and Kansas City have passed Tobacco 21 ordinances (which includes sales of e-cigarettes). These 3 ordinances cover 75.6% of the Clay County population.
