It has been brought to the attention of BHA Management that the outside laundry room (located at Forrestal Heights) has become a haven for smoking and drinking. This was not the intention of BHA when they decided to provide an additional laundry facility at Forrestal Heights. The outside laundry facility was not created to be a lounge, it was created to assist those residents in the low rise units by providing an onsite low cost convenient laundry facility.
To those residents who are smoking in the laundry room, you need to stop. To those residents who are bringing alcohol and drinking in the laundry room, you need to stop. Please respect your neighbors and the vision of what BHA is trying to do for its tenants. BHA is asking for your compliance in adhering to the existing policies regarding smoking and the use of alcohol on BHA properties. It cost your nothing to smoke outside BHA buildings and it cost even less to drink alcohol inside your apartments. Do yourselves a favor and be part of the solution and not part of the problem. A little common decency towards your fellow tenants would not hurt you.
It would be a shame to close the outside laundry room because of the actions of a few.
