TRURO – More areas in the Town of Truro will be designated smoke-free.
Truro town council voted unanimously on Monday to implement a new smoke-free bylaw.
The previous bylaw dictated smoking was not permitted on Inglis Place and on playgrounds owned by the town.
The first reading of a potential updated bylaw was discussed at council last month. During the second, and final, reading of the bylaw on Monday, solicitor John Rafferty clarified that the new bylaw would expand to include no smoking on Inglis Place, playgrounds owned by the town as well as all trails, parks and green spaces owned by the town. Recreation facilities, the civic block and around the Colchester Legion Stadium will also now be smoke-free areas.
