HB 1661: What Local Land Use Boards Need to Know!

Broadcast Date: 
Wednesday, August 10, 2022

There were several bills introduced last session that sought to address issues regarding affordable housing development. House Bill 1661 was the omnibus bill to survive and contains new provisions that will encourage affordable housing and require land use boards to improve transparency and speed up the local approval process.

Join Office of Planning & Development’s Principal Planner, Noah Hodgetts, and NHMA’s Government Affairs Counsel, Natch Greyes, to learn about the major changes to the land use statutes caused by the passage of the governor’s housing bill, including new training requirements for local land use boards. Our speakers will also discuss a new zoning exemption for properties used primarily for religious purposes.

This webinar is open to all NHMA members and will benefit all land use boards who want to better understand the changes made to certain land use statutes in the last legislative session.
