Mutual, a property company operating in Omaha, Nebraska, US, yesterday banned tobacco smoking from one of its apartment buildings, according to a story by Cindy Gonzalez for the Omaha World Herald.
The decision to prohibit tobacco smoking at the Midtown Crossing building came after a survey of residents.
Aja Anderson, the DouglasCounty’s community health educator, called the addition of the Midtown Crossing building a big step because it was in a newer development in a thriving area of town.
She said many property managers started off designating a tobacco smoke-free zone in one or two buildings; then later added more areas.
“Mutual of Omaha’s decision will likely encourage others to join efforts to provide smoke-free living,” Anderson said.
