Pinehurst Bans Tobacco Use, Concealed Guns From Recreational Facilities
The Village of Pinehurst has banned tobacco use and concealed handguns at virtually all of its outdoor recreational facilities.
The Village Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to ban the two items at village playgrounds, athletic fields, swimming pools and ohter athletic facilities.The greenway trails are considered athletic facilities in relation to both bans.
The lone exception to the tobacco ban will be the Harness Track.
The bans are effective immediately, but Parks and Recreation Director Mark Wagner said there will be an education campaign that will take place before penalties are enforced.
