Program to Reward Winchester Landlords for Smoke-free Housing

A new program seeks to increase the availability of smoke-free rentals in town, while rewarding landlords who comply with the town’s housing standards ordinance.

The smoke-free incentive will be in effect until Sept. 30, said Margaret A. Sharra, Winchester land use administrator and zoning code enforcement officer.

It’s funded through part of a $1.1 million federal Partnership to Improve Community Health Grant, which was awarded in 2014, according to a news release from Healthy Monadnock.

Healthy Monadnock is a community initiative that promotes healthy living in the Monadnock Region. It was founded in 2007 by Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene.

According to the news release, smoke-free policies provide cost savings to landlords on insurance and general property maintenance, while tenants benefit by breathing clean air.
