United Smoke-Free Building Designation Procedure

Designation of Buildings as “Smoke-Free”

The Board of Directors of United Laguna Woods Mutual is pleased to announce that the Board has developed and adopted a procedure under which Members occupying Manors in a building can collectively petition for the designation of their building as “smoke-free.”

This innovative procedure was designed in response to Members’ concerns about the health effects of second-hand smoke and the nuisance that tobacco and other smoke can cause.

The process to designate a building as “smoke-free” requires unanimous consent of all Members occupying units in the building and a fee for each manor.  The process also involves multiple forms that must be completed and submitted to United (including an amendment to the Members’ Occupancy Agreement), includes an appearance before the Board to ensure that there is unanimous consent of the building’s members, and, upon approval, will result in a building being permanently, irrevocably and forever designated as “smoke-free.” 

Should you wish to pursue designation of your building as “smoke-free”, please contact the General Manager’s Office via telephone at (949) 597-4265.

First Ever Smoke-Free Building Designated in Laguna Woods Village

Laguna Woods Village resident Barbara Copley has finally realized her dream of living in a permanently non-smoking building. Barbara, a 15-year resident and former director, spearheaded the effort to designate Building 410 as “smoke-free.”

“I am thrilled that the day has finally come where I can say my building is officially ‘smoke-free’,” says Barbara. “I feel that this designation is so important because it helps protect the health and safety of my neighbors and myself.”
