BMHA buildings could be smoke-free by summer

Posted at 7:23 PM, Mar 03, 2016

The Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority wants to make its buildings smoke-free by July, following a recommendation by the U.S. Department of Housing.

According to the agency's executive director, many tenants are on board with creating a smoke-free environment.

"There's a lot of residents who would also like to see an opportunity for people who smoke to have an area to smoke," Dawn Sanders-Garrett says.

Residents can weigh in on the matter by sending comments to BMHA representatives.

Recommendations will go before the Board at a meeting on March 17th.
