PRESIDENT'S PERSPECTIVE

continued from page 4

Developers were required to pay two different “conversion fees” to develop land into neighborhoods, and were also required to pay “prevailing wage” on infrastructure that they paid for and then gave to the municipality. The conversion fee associated with the PACE Program and prevailing wage requirements on infrastructure were both eliminated and reduced the cost of housing development during the 2011-2012 legislative session.

These are only a few of the legislative and regulatory wins we have been able to accomplish since 2011, a brief snapshot of the economic gains and tax reductions that have been passed.

2010 was a very important election for housing and for our economy. All of the gains that have been made can be erased with different election results on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Please take some time to read and share the pieces in this magazine by the WBA endorsed candidates for governor and attorney general, Governor Scott Walker and Attorney General Brad Schimel.

This election is too important to sit out and just be happy with what we have been able to accomplish since 2011.
