Goodyear parks soon to be smoke-free
Learn more June 1 at a public meeting
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (May 26, 2009) ? All parks in the
city of Goodyear will become smoke-free environments beginning July 1.
To learn more about
the new nonsmoking policy for Goodyear parks, please attend a public meeting at
6 p.m. on Monday, June 1 at Goodyear City Hall.
By making parks smoke-free,
the city will provide people of all ages with healthier, more pleasant
environments for recreation and relaxation. The city also expects to see a
reduction in litter once cigarette and tobacco use is no longer permitted.
This, in turn, is likely to result in a small cost savings, since clean up and
sanitation services will also be reduced.
The decision to
designate all city parks as smoke-free environments is administrative.
Learn more. Attend the
free public meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, June 1 at Goodyear City Hall, 190 N. Litchfield Road, Goodyear, Ariz.
