Smoke Free

Smoke Free Housing

Many housing units in Lincoln County are going smoke free! As a property owner or manager, adopting a smoke-free policy for your building is a win-win situation for you and your residents. The majority of Maine multi-unit housing residents would prefer to live in smoke-free housing, and 43% say they're willing to pay more to live in a smoke-free environment. Smoke-free housing policies reduce the risk of property damage and lower unit turnover costs. On average, it costs 5-10 times more to turn over a unit when smoking has been allowed than if the property owner/manager had adopted a smoke-free policy.
