COVER STORY Apartment Communities Go on a HEALTH KICK Today's Healthy Amenities Run the Gamut from Fresh Air to Fresh Ideas BY LAUREEN M. CROWLEY M ultifamily communities across Florida are finding a host of ways to appeal to residents' desire for a healthy lifestyle, including smoke-free policies that minimize or eliminate residents' exposure to secondhand smoke; features that encourage walking or bicycling; and unprecedented recreational opportunities such as virtual golf, "fitness on demand" video workouts, lakeside trails, and kayak rentals. New communities are being built with healthful living an integral part of their design, while existing communities are competing by adding health-focused amenities. SMOKE-FREE LIVING Smoke-free living as an apartment community amenity has been growing in popularity over the past five years or so, ever since the Florida Department of Health's Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida established it as a primary objective. For starters, Department of Health representatives-known as "grantees"-began compiling lists of smoke-free apartment communities, condo communities, assisted living facilities, townhouses, duplexes-essentially any property shared by more than one tenant or family. Communities reported smoke-free policies ranging from partial policies that apply to a limited number of buildings, to policies that govern all indoor spaces, to those that designate the entire property as 100 percent smoke-free. For communities that had no smoke-free policies, DOH grantees described the benefits of smokefree policies and offered various types of assistance, explained Ron Davis, statewide tobacco policy manager for smokefree multi-unit housing with Tobacco Free Florida, a bureau of the Florida Department 10 l MULTIFAMILYFLORIDA l www.faahq.org http://www.faahq.org
