Maplewood passes outdoor parks and recreational areas smoking ban

Posted on

Maplewood unanimously passed a smoking ban for parks, playgrounds, recreational areas, and within 25 feet of the entrance to any building owned or leased by the Township at their Township Committee meeting on 2/22/12. Read the article from the News Record about the passage, an article from the Maplewood Navigator, and an article from the Alternative Press when the ordinance was introduced in early January.

Outdoor bans for beaches, parks and recreational areas continue to proliferate around the state. Visit our webpage with more information on Outdoor Smokefree Environments.
