State parks looking at ban on beaches

Modified: Wednesday, Aug 20th, 2014

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is holding a series of public meetings to solicit input on proposed smoking restrictions on public beaches.

The proposed rules would restrict smoking of tobacco products on the ocean shore recreation area. Lincoln County residents will have an opportunity to comment on this issue at a meeting set for 7 p.m. Thursday at Central Lincoln PUD, 2129 N Coast Highway, Newport.

In addition to comments made at public hearings, written comments will be accepted through regular mail (OPRD Beach Smoking, 725 Summer St. NE, Suite C, Salem OR 97301) or by email (oprd.publiccomment@oregon.gov).
