We are notifying you about a change in the smoking policy at all of our Public Housing communities.

As of June 1, 2018, smoking will be prohibited in common areas, apartment units, and within the footprint of our community, including porches and balconies for all family communities. The High Rise buildings will have one designated smoking location in an outside location. This new policy applies to all residents, guests, employees and contractors.

HUD published a final rule for each Public Housing Agency administering low-income, conventional public housing to initiate a smoke-free policy. The effective date of the Rule is February 3, 2017, and it provides an 18-month implementation period.

Winston-Salem – On Tuesday, March 29th, 2011, the Piedmont Triad Apartment Association (PTAA) honored the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem with a Diamond Award for the best “Turnaround Property” over 30 (thirty) years old. Townview Apartments, owned and operated by the Housing Authority, was the property selected to receive the award due to the significant renovations or restorations made to the property and creating positive changes in the process.

Townview is located at 728 West 13th Street and was originally built in 1981. This was the first time a major renovation has taken place at the site. The renovation project was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The focus of the new and improved community has been to create a more environmentally friendly living space with a modernized floor plan, interior décor, and energy efficient appliances.
