No Smoking Ordinance
An ordinance fully prohibiting smoking in all city parks, recreation areas and city owned property will become effective on July 13, 2017. The no-smoking restriction includes electronic cigarettes and vaping devices.
The ordinance clarifies previous similar ‘park rules” and is easier to understand and, if necessary, enforce.
Smoke-free outdoor recreation areas, bike paths, and outdoor assembly areas encourage healthy behavior, reduce unwanted exposure to secondhand smoke, a known carcinogen, and reduce fire hazards.
