Steve Handen: "No smoking in the park, part of me says that would be a nice thing, because I don't want there to be smoking anywhere. But I do think it's a veiled way of getting homeless out of there."
Nonsense. The smokefree policy proposal for Acacia Park is in tune with the other 656 municipalities in the USA with smokefree parks, of which nine are in the state of Colorado.
Acacia Park should be smokefree for reasons indicated in the above post by Laura. The cynical Mr. Handen is looking for ulterior motives rather than accept the simple facts that Acacia Park should become an oasis from secondhand smoke, the Class A carcinogen that is created by the lit tiny toxic waste dumps when they are smoked in the park.
