Nassau County Legislator Laura Schaefer is pleased to announce the unanimous passage of a resolution to accept the donation of “No Smoking” signage from the Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island to place in Nassau County Parks.

In recognition of the difficulties that smokers face with breaking the smoking habit, Nassau County parks will now have signage at designated areas for smoking. All smoking areas will be situated away from playgrounds, ball fields and restrooms.

“Smoking is not permitted in Nassau Parks except in these designated areas,” stated Legislator Schaefer. “We are all aware of the negative effects that smoking has on your health. With that in mind, I encourage smokers to use every available resource to quit the habit, but until then, they will have a place to go in Nassau’s outdoor parks.”

The signage is being donated by the Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island. “The Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island is very pleased to be able to assist Nassau County in their efforts to communicate the new rules that restrict smoking to designated areas through the donation of free signage on behalf of the health and welfare of the residents of NC,” said Carol Meschkow, Nassau Project Coordinator for the Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island.
