The HBAL Golf Outing is always one of my favorite HBAL events. Unfortunately, I will miss this year’s tournament, but I invite you to head out to the course over lunch to grab a burger and Lanny’s famous beans Ruth makes each year!

We have set up our first quarterly meeting with the Building & Safety Department. We will be discussing any changes members see in code enforcement with their staff. Please reach out to me or any of our volunteer leadership with any issues you are dealing with or have seen.

We expect to see changes from the Planning Department dealing with zoning codes which may affect housing affordability. Ann Post and I have been invited to be a part of a stakeholder group to review the proposed changes. We will keep you informed of how the process proceeds.

Taylor Wyatt, Ann Post, Denny Van Horn, Herb Reese and I recently met with LES about their pilot program to install conduit for delivering power to new construction. They shared they have removed their implementation deadline as they continue to work through the process and deal with difficulties they have run into with their pilot program.

I hope you have a great start to your summer!
