The State of Oregon is in the process of adopting new Climate Friendly and Equitable Communities (CFEC) rules. The Home Builders Association finds these rules to be egregious at best. In an effort to combat these new rules that will inevitably make development more costly and difficult, the HBA sent a letter to all members last week, giving you the opportunity to have your voice heard. The HBA’s state association, Oregon Home Builders Association, has been working to combat these rules for quite some time, however, there was no option for public comment for the most recent changes. In the most recent letter we asked the Oregon Land Conservation and Development Commission to allow Oregonians to provide input and to receive answers to many questions in writing; as most Oregonians still have no idea how these rules will impact them and how they intend to live and work. To learn more about how we and your state association are working to combat these and other changes visit OHBA's site today.
