Advocacy Issues & Legislation
Chicago REALTORS® Housing Policy Reform Initiative
A multi-fold initiative. This initiative covers several different areas where the Association can weigh in on existing housing policy committees and boards within local government.
- Mayor Daley’s Condominium Reform Committee
- Mayor Daley’s Affordable Housing Task Force
- Mayor Daley’s Building Code Task Force
- The Building Commissioner’s Industry Work Group
- RLTO Reform/Eviction Reform
We are also positioned on several NAR committees and local working groups on NSP dollars and other issues.
Chicago REALTORS® Building Code Reform Coalition
For several months we have looked; within the confines of a coalition ways to reduce the cost of housing outside of the building code (i.e. administrative changes; federal policy changes; other funding sources). With those areas being exhausted we have now researched with Chicago Building Code and are making outreach to other groups to work on code issues. As a result of our efforts, meetings are now taking place with organized labor and the Office of the Mayor.
