I would like to extend an invitation to all home builders in DeKalb county and especially DeKalb, IL. to attend a meeting of the Government Affairs committee on Tuesday 28th of June at 0700 for breakfast and 0730 for meeting time. We will be at the Lincoln Inn in downtown DeKalb. The presentation will be by the city of DeKalb on their new proposed Incentive Plan to help spur new housing in DeKalb. If you are a builder and want to build in DeKalb come and hear for your self some of the incentives the city is proposing. You do not need to be a member of the DCBDA. All are invited. Breakfast is on you. Hope to see many of you there. This could be very interesting to you the builder. Also we will have an update on the Impact Fees in Sycamore. We have some very interesting news on this issue as well.

Greetings. As most of you know the DCBDA board has voted to apply to the Home Builders of Illinois (HBAI) and to the National Home Builders Association (NAHB) to join with them but also to get our charter back for DeKalb County. We are making good process with the application. We will be submitting the application to them early next week. The NAHB Board will be meeting in August to vote on this. We also have the release from Greater Chicago Home Builders so that DeKalb County will have its charter back. Also in the process we have been given LaSalle county as part of our jurisdiction.
We are doing this to increase and strengthen our local builders as we continue to advocate with them with such items as "Impact Fees". This is just one of the issues we will continue to address. Certainly Building codes will be another issues as many of the communities are way behind with updating their codes.
Many of you have expressed interest in joining the HBAI and NAHB. We are now asking you to begin that process. The dues for both groups is $350. Please make the checks payable to the DCBDA. I will either come by and pick up or mail them to PO Box 584, DeKalb, IL. 60115. If you want to pay by credit card call Marcus Tryggestad at 815-748-1426.
If you have any questions or want to know more give me a call.
