At April’s Regular Council Meeting, Thurman Brendlinger of the Clean Air Council recognized Eddystone’s participation in the “Young Lungs at Play” program.
“Young Lungs at Play” is an initiative to create tobacco free playgrounds and parks in our community. Council took action to pass an ordinance to designate all playgrounds, parks and ball fields in the Borough as tobacco-free zones. Signage was provided free of charge and will be installed at all Borough recreation facilities.
Eddystone’s ordinance was sponsored by Councilman David Paterson as follow-up on a recommendation from Recreation Board Member Hope Quinn.
