The city of Huntington, W.Va. is making all of its parks tobacco-free after the Greater Huntington Park and Recreation District board approved a proposal on Wednesday night.
The new regulation will still allow smoking and vaping in the parks’ parking lots, while new trash receptacles and signage announcing the ban is expected to be installed in the coming weeks, according to a report by Herald-Dispatch.com. The policy is expected to be mainly self-enforced, similar to other policies in place for the city’s parks.
Neither the city nor parks board have posted the ordinance on their respective websites.
Huntington is home to just over 48,000 residents.
