Dearborn, Mich. Considering Parks Smoking Ban


At a July 23 meeting, the Dearborn City Council will take up a proposed smoking ban that would affect 43 of its parks.

According to The Detroit Free Press, there isn’t a consensus on what, if any exceptions should be granted. Under the proposal smoking cigarettes, cigars, hookahs and pipes, along with e-cigarette use would be banned with warnings given and fines of $25 issued to those who fail to follow the proposed role.


At least one park, Camp Dearborn, would be exempt as its regulated by a township. In addition, exemptions including smoking areas and a pass to public golf courses are being debated.

The move was tabled last month.

Dearborn sits on the edges of downtown Detroit. It has a population of around 100,000 and is known for being home to the Ford Motor Co.
