First Tobacco Free Sign Installed in Sand Springs

Sand Springs city leaders gathered Friday as the first Tobacco Free sign was installed.

City councilors made the decision about a year ago when a measure was approved to ban tobacco products from all properties owned, leased or managed by the parks system.

According to a previous report from the Sand Springs Leader, the new measure will ban the use from park properties like the Canyons at Blackjack Ridge Golf Course or the River City Parks sports complex.

Organizers gathered Friday morning to install the first of the signs. Representatives with the Tulsa Health Department also were at the event.

A spokesperson for the parks department added that enforcement will be based on "common sense" and ultimately rest with Sand Springs Police.
