Help Select a Design for “Tobacco Free” Signs for City Parks.

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

The City of Oklahoma City is asking citizens to help select a design for “tobacco free” signs that will be installed in City parks.

The signs support a resolution passed by City Council in May that encourages park visitors to abide by a voluntary policy to keep parks free from all lighted or unlighted tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco and snuff.

Four sign designs are available for public viewing on the City’s website at Citizens can select the sign design they like best and email their selection to They can also cast votes via the Oklahoma City Parks Department’s Twitter @okcparks and Facebook accounts. Each sign communicates a message that is in keeping in the spirit of the tobacco-free policy.

 “Public input is an important part of gaining support for this initiative,” said Wendel Whisenhunt, Parks and Recreation director. “We hope that by helping select which signs are installed in our parks, citizens will be more willing to comply with the policy and help keep our parks free of tobacco products.”

For more information about the policy and the sign designs, citizens may call 297-3882 or email
