Resources and Information
We create community through people, parks and programs.
The City of Elgin is committed to making our community a healthy place to live, work and recreate. To help achieve that vision, the City Council recently passed an ordinance banning all tobacco substances from most of the city’s parks and recreation facilities. The only exceptions to this tobacco ban are the three city golf courses, Festival Park lawn area during concerts, and the sports complex softball fields during adult programs and events. Banning tobacco substances from our parks strives to achieve several benefits, including elimination of second hand smoke, reduction in the amount of park litter and most importantly positive role models for the young people that use the city's parks and recreation facilities. All residents and users of our parks are encouraged to help us to spread the word of this new ordinance. If you wish to read the full
you can find it here
(Chapter 9.50.030 - Ordinance No. G48-15).
