Government Advocacy


The HBCA works tirelessly to lower your expenses and increase your revenue by letting city council members, county commissioners, and state legislators know the impact of their policies on the residential and commercial development. HBCA’s mission is to fight unnecessary fees and seek ways to stop burdensome regulations. The HBCA is committed to passing laws and ordinances that improve your bottom line. 

HBCA’s Government Affairs Committee forges relationships with local officials to foster greater mutual understanding, minimize excessive regulation that unnecessarily burdens residential and commercial development, and strives to safeguard our community’s economic development and natural resources.
