Kennesaw, Ga. Schedules Vote on Park Smoking Ban

Null

A new smoking ban could be in place for all 130 acres of parks in the city of Kennesaw, Ga. by the end of the month, as a public hearing and vote has been scheduled for August 18 by the Kennesaw City Council.

The city’s current smoking ban, which was enacted in 2004, creates areas in parks where people are allowed to smoke and use tobacco products. If this proposal gets passed, all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, would be banned in all areas of city parks.

The city council previously took up the issue in 2013 but was met with resistance from residents and subsequently tabled. Councilwoman Cris Eaton-Welsh told the Marietta Daily Journal that this version is completely different from that one.

Kennesaw is located about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta and has a population of approximately 31,000 residents.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
