A revision to the House Rules regarding smoking was made in July 2018.
SMOKING POLICY – Smoking is prohibited from taking place in all common areas of the Booth Street Owners Corp. building property, including but not limited to lobbies, hallways, stairwells, elevators, roofs, balconies/terraces, gym, basement, front courtyard, thoroughfares, amenity spaces as well as within 100 feet of the front, side, garage, service and/basement entrances to the 67-76 Booth Street building. Smoking is defined to include carrying, burning or otherwise handling or controlling any chewed, lighted, electric, or smoldering product containing tobacco or any other substance or item which can be smoked including, but not limited to, cigarettes, cigars, pipes, electronic cigarettes, “vapes” or any other substance from which smoke or vapors emirate. Shareholders are responsible for the compliance with this policy by themselves, all permitted occupants who reside within the apartment, and for all family members, tenants, guests, and invitees of such shareholders. Residents must also take all reasonable steps required to prevent smoke from escaping from their unites in a manner which could create objectionable odors in the nature of secondhand smoke.
If a resident fails to prevent smoke from escaping from his/her unit, the Board of Directors may require the resident to install a filtration system/high efficiency particulate (HEPA) filter. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board of Directors can immediately issue the resident a notice of default of the Proprietary Lease and House Rules due to any violation of this smoking policy.
The Board of Directors also reserves the right to fine the shareholders fifty dollars ($50.00) for each violation of this smoking policy (each day that the violation exists will be considered a separate violation). Notwithstanding the foregoing, this remedy will not be deemed the exclusive remedy of the Board of Directors.
