Homeowners send letter to HIP Housing and County

Edgewater Isle Senior Apartments employee smokes by signHomeowners at Edgewater Isle have sent a letter to HIP Housing, the owner of the Edgewater Isle Senior Apartments, and to the Housing Authority of San Mateo County about the HIP Housing employee who smokes on premises, in clear violation of San Mateo City Ordinance. The letter was copied to the Edgewater Isle North and Edgewater Isle Master associations, whose responsibility it should be for following up on the violation and for working with HIP Housing to resolve this problem.

This employee was photographed last summer smoking on premises. In a story posted on last August, witnesses said that the man flicked lit cigarette butts in the area.

The City of San Mateo has a No Smoking ordinance, 7.40.050, which reads in part:

(a) Smoking is prohibited inside any multi-unit residence and within 40 feet of a multi-unit residence.
(b) Smoking is prohibited within any enclosed and un-enclosed multi-unit residence common area.

You can read the full ordinance on the City's website.

A reader tell us of an employee of the senior apartments who is smoking throught out the Edgewater Isle Senior Apartments. This employee has been asked to not smoke in the area, but he continues to smoke and throws lit butts in the area.

The City of San Mateo has a smoking ordinance. It specifically says that "Inside Multi-unit Residences, including balconies, common areas, and within 40 feet of the building" (emphasis added).

It seems this worker is violating it. HIP Housing should take responsibility for this.
