At the Progressive Development Committee meeting this week, councilman Ross Kaul announced that he'll be proposing a no smoking ordinance for all the parks in the city of Norcross at the next policy work session.
"Secondhand smoking is worse for younger children and the elderly than primary," said Kaul. "I say no smoking in our parks, [and] no smoking where our children or our families are."
The ordinance would include all tobacco products, not just smoking.
The initiative was addressed in the March policy work session, and a proposed ordinance will be available for the next session April 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Norcross City Hall. The session is open to the public.
Before the session, though, we want to know: What do you think about it?
