ESA Regulations: Tell Us How Well They're Working
NAHB is continuing to work on ways to make the regulations under the Endangered Species Act easier for builders to understand and put into practice. We’re hoping you can help.
NAHB staff needs to better understand the issues that builders and developers face as regulators interpret the ESA. If you are aware of any particularly egregious instances where you feel as though the ESA has been abused or has operated in a counter-productive fashion, NAHB would like to know.
We’re particularly interested in problems you have getting construction projects approved, permitting issues, attempts to list species found on the property, any difficulty in determining if already protected species are even on the property and, of course, any enforcement actions or lawsuits.
Bring us your issues, big and small, and help us figure out a way that homes can be built, endangered species can be protected, and the ESA and the industry can coexist successfully.
