Should smoking be banned in Danville’s parks is a question that is being considered by the Town Council on September 6 and if adopted can be put into force by October 20th.

This all came about due to the rating Danville received by the American Lung Association’s Statewide smoking report. It wasn’t good.

If accepted and passed as a City Ordinance, we can expect to see signs in the parks letting those who smoke know that it is banned and if not adhered to by smokers – a $100 fine may be imposed.

While I don’t encourage anyone to smoke, if the ban on smoking in Danville City parks is imposed, I guess the only place a person will be able to light up is in their own backyard (for now).

The open air is no longer free space for everyone.
