Will parts of Deschutes County go smoke free?  A local survey that highlights the results of surveys and focus groups will be released Thursday night, October 18th,  in Bend, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at The Deschutes County Services Center Building in Bend.

 

Local citizens, businesses and visitors have complained about second hand smoke and cigareete butts.

 

Deschutes County is responding to some of those concerns by asking for feedback.  They are releasing the results of surveys they asked for back in June.

 

Deschutes County Health Educator David Visiko was a recent guest on 1110 KBND's morning news.

 

"MOre and more people in deschutes county are asking for smoke free spaces -cause they want public places that are healthy -spaces that are accessible to everyone- and they want family friendly places- so with the survey we're hoping to see how people perceive the impact of second hand smoke on their experience when they are in the downtown area. 
 
i think that smoke free spaces help make our community more accessible to everyone-as a community we want to make sure that smoke is not a barrier to people visiting downtown. this is driven more so by the people.  we're getting second hand reports from business owners and visitors  who say they're getting exposed to second hand smoke --or they're having to clean up the cigarette butts from neighboring businesses- and so this is not something that's not driven by government, but by what people are asking for. 
 
People in Sisters, Redmond Bend and La Pine returned feedback surveys to the county. Again, the results will be released from 6:00 to 7:30 in Bend.
