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.
