A proposal to ban smoking in the parks of Reno, Nev. got the support of the city’s Recreation and Parks Commission on Tuesday, as seven of the nine members voted in favor of forwarding it to the city council, with two of the members absent from the meeting.
While the city has not posted the full text of the ban that the commission voted on, the meeting’s agenda indicates that smoking in all parks would be banned unless a designated smoking area was provided and had proper signage. A report from KOLOtv.com indicated that is how the ban passed.
The ban is not currently on the agenda for the city council’s next meeting, which occurs on May 23.
Reno is home to approximately 245,000 residents.
