Free NAHB Webinar to Discuss Impact Fee Alternatives on April 21
With more communities turning to impact fees to address such problems as aging infrastructure, traffic congestion, overcrowded schools and inadequate water and sewer capacity, NAHB is holding a free webinar on April 21 to give members the tools they need to shift community discussions and solutions to alternative financing mechanisms that will solve infrastructure problems in an ailing economy.
The webinar, by NAHB’s Land Development Committee with support from NAHB Multifamily, will introduce builders, developers, home builders associations and land development professionals to the resources available from NAHB.
Participants will also learn about strategies to press the case for impact fee rollbacks and alternative solutions.
In addition, participants will learn:
- How to evaluate the appropriateness of development impact fees currently being imposed by local governments
- How impact fees affect land development companies and local jurisdictions
- How to avoid common administration and implementation problems in impact fee ordinances
- Common errors made when computing impact fees
Webinar speakers include:
- J. Michael Noonan, chairman of the NAHB Land Development Committee and division president of Rottlund Homes, and a large, privately-held home builder and developer operating in Minnesota, Florida and Iowa
- Carter Froelich, managing principal at DPFG Consultants, which focuses on helping land developers and builder clients navigate the development and construction process in a timely and cost-efficient manner
- Thais Austin, NAHB infrastructure and public finance specialist
