CRESCENT CITY, CA. Three more apartment communities will be joining the ranks of having a healthier environment as Seabreeze, Totem Villa and Seagull Villa Apartments transition into a no smoking policy that will protect staff, tenants and visitors from the dangers of second hand smoke. The policy will prohibit new tenants from smoking with the prohibition included with any new lease agreements.
Rural Communities Housing Development Corporation, who owns and manages the apartment communities, has always been committed to making their communities safer and more attractive for residents. As all the apartment communities are part of the Crescent City Police Department’s Crime Free Multi-Unit Housing Program, the implementation of a no smoking policy was the next step to improve the safety and health of all tenants.
The trend towards creating smoke free environments where people reside benefits both the tenants and property owners. It promotes residents health by protecting them from secondhand smoke while improving a property manager’s bottom line through reduced turnover costs and decreased fire risks.
The Department of Health and Human Services, Tobacco Use Prevention Program, has teamed up with the Crescent City Police Department’s Crime Free Multi-Unit Housing Program to assist communities in becoming safer and healthier for all residents.
