BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — A non-binding online petition is asking the Breckenridge Town Council not to allow recreational marijuana shops in the ski resort's downtown area.

The Summit Daily News reports ( ) the petition is an attempt to rally public opposition to downtown pot sales and doesn't have any legal clout.

The petition doesn't advocate a blanket ban on recreational marijuana shops but only in the downtown area. It cites a desire to keep the town family-friendly.

About 800 people had signed it by Tuesday.

The Town Council is expected to take a preliminary vote in October on a proposed ordinance allowing recreational pot sales downtown. The council and town staff have been working on the details.

Colorado voters legalized recreational marijuana sales as of Jan. 1.
