Tobacco Free Policy adopted by Board of Commissioners
The Carol Stream Park District’s philosophy is to promote health and a clean air environment. A Tobacco Free Policy was adopted by the Park District Board of Commissioners at the September 26, 2016 meeting.
The use of any and all tobacco products is prohibited in all park district buildings, facilities and parks.
All smoking containers outside park district facilities will be removed as smoking is no longer allowed 15 feet from the building. Smokers must be off of park district property completely.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation! Read more for policy.
