Public Feedback on Tobacco in Parks

This survey closed on October 31, 2016. Thank you for your participation.

A decision was made to prohibit smoking within 6 metres of any playground. Monitoring will also occur at Tuey Park beach to determine if a ban may be required in all or part of that park. We also distributed helpful “no smoking” stickers regarding the Provincial prohibition against smoking or vaping within 6 metres of a business’ door, window, or air vent.

What do you think about smoking tobacco in parks, on beaches, or on recreation trails (such as the Riverwalk)?

Right now, the Provincial Tobacco Control Regulation bans smoking within 3 metres of a window, air intake, or door of a business or a public place. However, this does not include most park, beach, and trail spaces.

Your feedback will be compiled and presented for further consideration by the Enderby & District Services Commission. Note that any change to the bylaw would only apply to parks within the City of Enderby.
