Government Affairs

On Thursday, February 22, the Government Affairs Committee met to discuss the issues facing home builders in our association. Some of the issues discussed were the sewer permit situation in Dekalb County, the proposed code and rezoning plan in Sandy Springs, and the bond issue affecting Woodstock.

Other news this week is that we learned that the City of Brookhaven will be lifting their moratorium on permits on February 28.

The new motto for our HBA Government Affairs team is “See Something, Say Something.” We encourage you to reach out to our new Government Affairs Director Stephen Davis if something is happening that is negatively affecting our industry.
