Leaders in Penfield, N.Y. are seeking public comment on a proposal that would prohibit smoking in town-owned parks, trails, athletic fields, playgrounds, and entryways to town facilities.
The town has posted an online survey that it is asking residents to fill out before April 24. “Penfield’s parks and amenities are a wonderful resource to town residents, we want people to have the healthiest possible experience when visiting these venues,” the city wrote on its website.
Penfield is located about 10 miles east of Rochester in the state’s northwest corner near Lake Ontario. It is home to an estimated 36,242 residents.
