Information about Ithaca’s new outdoor smoking regulations available throughout August

 
Ithaca, N.Y., July 28, 2010 — Last April, Ithaca’s Common Council passed a city ordinance adopting outdoor smoking regulations to its municipal code. On August 1, 2010, the new city ordinance will be going into effect making portions of the Commons, City parks, TCAT shelters, playgrounds, public events, and other public outdoor areas smoke-free.

Tobacco Free Tompkins staff will be on the Commons on the following dates to provide information about the ordinance as well as information on how to quit.

Monday August 2nd, from 11:00-2:00 under the Bernie Milton Pavilion
Wednesday August 4th, from 11:00-2:00 under the Cayuga St. Pavilion
