Ithaca College Smoking Policy Comment from znewswanger on 06/29/2012
I would like to make a couple of recommendations to this policy:
1) a map showing these designated locations would be very helpful, and with
the use of google earth, actual pictures of these locations can be hyperlinked
to the policy providing a better description and almost pin point location for
where smokers can be.
2) a piece from the policy that seems to be missing is that the recommended
minimum distance a person should smoke from any part of a building including
overhangs is 20 feet which is a state guideline.
3) I also did not read any statement encouraging all smokers to make sure
they properly dispose of there cigarette butts, and not throw them on the
ground, as this creates work for our facilities grounds and services staff, and at
times causes fires and is not at all estheticly pleasing. This being said,
possibly identifying where cigarette receptacles are located would also be
I would be happy in any way to help with the recommendations that I have
listed above.
Sincerely, Zach Newswanger, Director of Maintenance, Facilities
