City of Sherrill Smoking Policy

The City of Sherrill established a policy prohibiting the use of tobacco in parks and recreation facilities in 2011.  The City of Sherrill has updated the policy to include all City of Sherrill facilities and parks, and to include smokeless tobacco, vapor and e-cigarettes. 

The City of Sherrill is committed to providing a high quality of living for all residents.  Therefore we believe that:

  1. Tobacco and related product use including smokeless tobacco, vapor and e-cigarettes, in proximity of children, youth and adults engaging in or watching recreational activities may be unhealthy and detrimental to the health of others.
  2. Tobacco and related products including smokeless tobacco, vapor and e-cigarettes may be improperly discarded which could cause litter, become a hazard and cause a risk to patrons.
  3. As parents, leaders, coaches and officials, we may be thought of as role models, and the use of tobacco and related products including smokeless tobacco, vapor and e-cigarettes around youth may affect their lifestyle choices.

The City of Sherrill prohibits the use of tobacco and related products including smokeless tobacco, vapor and e-cigarettes in and around ALL City of Sherrill parks, recreation and public facilities.
