The Parks and Recreation Commission took a look at the proposed ordinance at its meeting Monday night.
“A lot of other cities in California are doing this; (the) city of Davis, (the) city of Sacramento nearby do it," said city spokeswoman Megan MacPherson.  "And it’s something that I think is really welcome by the families.  The people who use the parks are going to look forward to having a healthy environment for everyone."  

If approved, the ordinance would designate Roseville’s 55 parks and 4,000 acres of open space areas smoke-free.  The city would then post no-smoking signs in those areas.
