I have been wondering when a condominium community in the Atlanta area would amend their declaration to prohibit smoking inside each residential condo unit. Well, it has finally happened. The Buckhead Grand on Peachtree Road has successfully achieved status as a non-smoking community.
This trend has occurred in other areas of the country but to my knowledge this is a first in the Atlanta market.
As a condominium dweller, I somewhat favor the idea of a non-smoking community. I assume that the Buckhead Grand board of directors worked very diligently to achieve the required two-thirds affirmative votes to amend their declaration. This is usually no small task.
So, Midtown condominium dwellers…what say you?
Would you support your community going smoke-free?
Do you think it is too restrictive to prohibit smoking in your home and on your limited common element balcony?
