NOTICE FROM CITY OF BARRIE PARKS DEPARTMENT

Posted by Barrie Slo-pitch Association on Jul 24 2017 at 01:13PM PDT

To our valued Sports Field Organizations:

We have received feedback that tobacco use in proximity to our sports fields has been an issue this season in certain areas such as the BCSC. Smoking is not permitted within 20 meters of a sports field or spectator area, please see the link below for more information. We would like to remind our organizations that tobacco use proximal to a sports field is not permitted and fines may be incurred through enforcement. We wanted to make you aware so can communicate with your teams that the issue has been identified and enforcement agencies are aware of the issue. Please help us in providing a smoke free environment at our sports fields and please communicate this with your teams.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
