Adopting a Smoke-Free Policy:
Information for Owner-Occupied Common Interest Communities (CICs)

Residents and association boards of condominiums, co-operatives, townhomes, and other owner-occupied communities experience both similarities and differences to rental housing when adopting a smoke-free policy. Live Smoke Free  designed an informational folder specifically to meet the needs of resident home owners, boards, and community managers as they discuss the adoption of a smoke-free policy in their common interest community.

If you would like to receive a folder and its contents, please contact Live Smoke Free. For smoke-free housing programs who are inspired by our work, we ask that you contact us prior to reproducing, modifying or sharing our work, and that you credit us for the initial creation of these resources; we are very proud of the hardwork and creativity that went into making these resources.

This is a first look to understand the benefits and steps to adopting a smoke-free policy. The materials and information can be shared with all residents, board members, and community managers or attorneys. Since owner-occupied communities have differing rules and regulations according to their by-laws, Live Smoke Free can provide consultations to customize the process.
