In order to provide a healthier environment for our residents, employees, and guests, Mckinley communities are proud to be strictly smoke-free. The smoke-free policy covers all individual apartments, common areas, and outdoor areas. All residents, as well as their guests, employees, and vendors, are required to follow this policy. This policy is unfortunately not being exercised by some residents in our community.
We take great pride in providing you with a clean and safe environment. Multifamily buildings share air ducts or vents, which means a lit cigarette in one unit can easily transmit tobacco smoke into another unit. Even in modern buildings designed to minimize air transfer between units, there is no way to guarantee that smoke will not be blown from unit to unit through open windows. It is imperative that you and your guests continue to abide by our smoke-free policy.
Those who are found in violation of these policies will receive legal lease violation letters. If a 2nd smoking issue is reported after receiving a violation notice, we will be working with our attorneys to immediately vacate the residents in violation, to the extent of eviction if necessary. Please know it is not our wish to evict any of our residents, but the rules and regulations of the community must be upheld. We urge any smokers within the community to make alternate arrangements and locations for your smoking habits to avoid putting your housing into question.
We appreciate your immediate attention to this matter and ask that everyone be respectful of their neighbors. As always, thank you for choosing our community as your home!
