Madison, Conn. Considering Smoking Ban in Parks and Beaches


Madison, Conn., a coastal town located on the state’s southern coast, will soon be considering a smoking ban for its parks and beaches after the town’s Beach and Recreation Commission proposed the idea and a town selectman has supported the idea.

NBC Connecticut identified Madison First Selectman Fillmore McPherson as the supporter, who said the idea has been raised by a number of people.


The idea will first get a public hearing on March 23 before the town’s selectmen put it to a vote.

Madison is home to just over 18,000 residents and is located about 40 miles south of Hartford.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
