QUIT SMOKING NOW IN YOUR HOA, OR FACE FINES!

I receive lots of information via the website about smoking in HOAs. Most are seeking a ban on smoking in the common area. Some want to ban it in the units. This used to be a really dicey question. However, more and more municipalities, without the support of any state law, are passing tighter smoking regulations and some are now even approving resolutions that prohibit smoking in  multifamily units. I do not know them all. All I know is it is as simple as getting on the internet and putting in a search for “bans on smoking in >>>”, listing your community for the >>> part, and locating local ordinances either for comparison to what other places are doing, or for considering rules in your HOA.

Now, I can see the smoke rolling my way. Smokers, you probably have something to say, but cannot tell me that your second hand smoke is not a threat or a nuisance, whether carbon related or “high inducing”.

QUIT SMOKING NOW, and make the world a better place.

I can say this as a former smoker. It’s hard to quit, but it stinks.

    I think it’s a revolutionary move. Other homeowner’s association or governing bodies should start this NO SMOKING campaign. Thanks for sharing.

      You are welcome. Smoking issues, like noise issues, rarely end without great sacrifice (meaning paying a lawyer).
