Construction as an Essential Service
As construction workers across the nation continue to stay on the job, their safety and health remains a top priority. Please visit NAHB.org to see how you can help keep construction going through these difficult times.
Impact Fee Summary Report
The January 2022 Impact Fee Summary report will be emailed out to builder members the last week of January. This updated semi-annual report is provided as a service to our membership.
The average increase on the 2022 impact summary will reflect an average increase of 18% across the board. The January 2022 report will show the specifics of these increases. Beginning in January 2022 the new standard for the cost of an average new home in Utah Valley will be $500,000 on a 10,000 square foot lot.
Government Affairs Political Action Committee (PAC)
The Government Affairs PAC plays an important role in supporting candidates for local office who understand and support our industry. Your contributions help fund the work of responsive government and affordable housing. Please consider making a generous donation in 2021. The election this year is a mayoral and council election, and we need your help to elect housing friendly mayors and city council members. Our General Membership Meeting to raise money for the PAC is on March 18, 2021 at 11:30 AM at the UVHBA offices. The Government Affairs PAC had an 86% success rate with candidates winning their races in 2019. Thank you to all who contributed and voted!
The Government Affairs PAC Golf Tournament for 2022 is tentatively scheduled in May at Hobble Creek Golf Course. Please consider being a sponsor. Sponsorship opportunities include sponsoring a hole, breakfast, the driving range, or lunch! All funds are used to help us elect housing friendly city officials.
