In a region made up of more than 100 local governments and multiple layers of regulatory and planning bodies, delivering positive results for BIA members requires vigilance, innovation and strategic thinking.
BIA’s governmental affairs team works across the region at the regional and local level to advance policies to ensure an adequate supply of quality, affordable housing in the Bay Area. In doing so, they help preserve homeownership and promote a healthy, growing regional economy.
The Governmental Affairs staff is the principle advocacy arm of Bay Area home builders and it handles myriad public issues that confront the industry. Growth controls, frivolous and abusive lawsuits, excessive environmental regulations and runaway fees are significantly impairing housing production and making homes less affordable. Our public policy makers have it in their power to make housing more plentiful and affordable. Supported by the practice, experience and input of its members, it is BIA’s commitment to pursue and push for those changes.
