The City Council in Phoenix, Arizona is set to vote this week on the motion to ban smoking inside public housing units. If passed, the plan would still allow for smoking on apartment balconies or patios.
The city of Phoenix which owns and operates eleven apartment buildings will be subjected to the outcome of the vote set to take place on Wednesday which is the next time the City Council meets.
A recent survey of residents in the public housing units saw 60 percent in support of a smoke-free building and 40% say they can smell smoke from other apartments in the building.
Phoenix, Arizona is home to 1.5 million residents over 517,948 square miles and was founded in 1881.
