No Tobacco/Vaping Signs Up In Lewis & Clark Festival Park

New signage recently installed at Lewis & Clark Festival Park in The Dalles alerts the public to the park’s new status as a tobacco- and vape-free facility.  In all, five signs are placed throughout the park, including two larger ones at the entrance and on the building there, and three smaller ones throughout the park.  The Dalles City Council in May passed an ordinance carrying a $100 fine for smoking or vaping in the park.   Officials expect most people will comply with the new rule, but if police are called because someone is smoking or vaping, officers are expected to provide education on the ordinance first, and only issue a ticket as a last resort.  The new ordinance brings the city’s park in line with the nine other smoke-free parks within The Dalles that are run by the North Wasco County Parks & Recreation District.  The signs were paid for by the city and the North Central Public Health District.
