In Ontario there is a strict no-smoking law. It seems to have become the norm for people to smoke outside of buildings because of this. At Oxbow LCC one thing that is important to us is to not interfere with the enjoyment of the property by others. Second hand smoke would be one of those things that could interfere with someone’s enjoyment.
In order to achieve this goal, the following are expectations for people smoking on property:
- In individual cottages smoking would be permitted by the member with percentage interest.
- In the Tamarack units, smoking out of doors would be allowed outside, away from the building so as not to interfere with people’s enjoyment.
- In common areas such as at the Lodge, at the picnic tables or at the dock, smoking would be permitted at a distance so as not to interfere with people’s enjoyment.
- In all cases it is imperative that smokers leave no trace of cigarettes on the property
