Win-Hood PSA - Smoking

We ask our smoking neighbors to be mindful when standing outside and not stand near open stairwells, entrances and windows. Drifting smoke can waft into an open window and affect residents, especially those that may be suffering from respiratory conditions. Also, please do not dispose of cigarette butts in the courtyard grounds or plant beds and pots. Let's keep our community beautiful!
