On Friday, Oct. 20, Jerry and Kristen Braklow graciously opened their home for a reception with HBA members and Overland Park City Councilmen Terry Goodman, Dave Janson, Jim Kite and Curt Skoog. Chris Newlin, who’s likely to win his district, also attended. HBA members, many of whom build and do business in Overland Park, had the opportunity to speak with the councilmen and candidates one-on-one about important issues that affect the industry locally.

The Braklows’ home offered a warm welcome to HBA members and Overland Park officials

Getting to know local candidates has great value for the HBA overall, but more importantly for its individual members — not just in Overland Park but across the Kansas City area. The relationships you form with elected officials is paramount to your business’ success. Creating opportunities like this with the people who make decisions that impact your business and the way you

make a living is a significant priority in the HBA’s efforts to being a leading advocate and the voice for the housing industry. “Since the event, every single council member in Overland Park who attended the meet and greet at Jerry’s home has shared details about the KCHBA/Braklow Custom Homes event on their Facebook pages,” said Executive Vice President Joshua Clark. “I guarantee they’ll recognize the name Braklow Custom Homes whenever they see it from now on.”

The HBA is looking forward to working with other members who are willing to host similar events for elected leadership. If you’re interested in hosting a city council meet and greet, please contact Joshua Clark at Also, when you have an opportunity, please thank Jerry and Kristen Braklow for inviting industry professionals and the candidates into their home. Their willingness to host the event allowed the HBA and its members to begin fostering relationships with those who set the policies that shape our industry. | Volume 23, No. 11 | November 2017

Republican Tax Reform Plan Slams Middle Class NAHB Chairman Granger MacDonald has issued this statement on the tax plan unveiled by House Republicans: The House Republican tax reform plan abandons middle-class taxpayers in favor of high-income Americans and wealthy corporations. The bill eviscerates existing housing tax benefits by drastically reducing the number of home owners who can take advantage of mortgage interest and property tax incentives. Capping mortgage interest at $500,000 for new home purchases means that home buyers in expensive markets will effectively lose this housing tax benefit moving forward. The House leadership killed a cost-effective plan proposed by NAHB that Ways and Means Committee leaders

KCMO Development Municipal Meeting

agreed to include in the legislation. It would provide a robust homeownership tax credit that would have helped up to 37 million additional home owners who do not currently itemize. Most are lowand moderate-income home owners.

HBA builder and developer members met with high level KCMO staff on Friday, Oct. 20 to discuss ongoing development issues in the city. Included in the meeting were Planning and Development Director Jeffrey Williams, Deputy Director Diane Binkley, Assistant Engineering Director Greg Franzen, Director of Public Works Sherri McIntyre, Water Services Chief Engineering Officer Matt Bond, and several others. The gathering was one in a series of municipal meetings coordinated by the HBA to establish and maintain an open dialogue with the city.

Meanwhile, as corporations receive a major tax cut, small businesses, which generate the lion’s share of job growth, get limited relief. The bottom line: Congress is ignoring the needs of America’s working-class families and small businesses. By undermining the nation’s longstanding support for homeownership and threatening to lower the value of the largest asset held by most American families, this tax reform plan will put millions of home owners at risk.

Discussion centered around the soft cost of development in Kansas City versus other jurisdictions, plat recording, inspections, and bonds. Delays in the development process are largely due to staff vacancies in the relevant departments, but the city is committed to improving the experience of builders and developers who work in the area. The city’s new Energov software, designed to help streamline the permitting and inspection process, is projected to go live in February. Members also received an update about the ongoing renovations of the 5th floor at City Hall, which are expected to be completed by the end of this year.

HBA of Missouri Prepares for 2018 Legislative Session The HBA of Missouri met on Thursday, Oct. 26 to discuss the upcoming state legislative session and create a working plan to address issues of interest to the home building industry. This year, advocacy efforts will include an increased focus on legislative monitoring coordinated on the local level. Special attention will be paid to issues such as workers’ comp reform, licensing legislation, industry fees, and

potential incentives for home ownership. However, it is expected that the legislature may have a limited scope this session as it faces budget shortfalls and rising healthcare and education costs. Members will also be reaching out to other HBAs currently inactive at the state level and work to restore a unified voice of the housing industry across Missouri.

Twenty-six percent said the main reason they visited homes on the Parade was to look for a new home to purchase. Seeing the latest design trends was another popular answer.

Permit Activity Remains Strong Through Third Quarter The third quarter of 2017 ended with 511 permits issued during September, according to the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City’s (HBA) monthly Residential Building Permit Statistics report. Year-to-date total permits are the highest in 10 years with 4,639 single family permits compared to 2016 with 4,282. Permit activity through September has increased 8 percent as compared to 2016 at this time. Multi-family construction has slowed compared to recent years, with 1,621 units permitted to date. Each county in the metro area has reported an increase in permit activity in 2017, with the exception of a slight decrease in Platte. Growth north of the river allows Kansas City, Mo., to continue to top the list of area cities in number of permits issued with 738; that, however is a decrease of 149 from the first three quarters of 2016. Other cities in the top permitting list are: Olathe with 482, Lee’s Summit at 390, Overland Park with 348 and Kansas City, KS/Wyandotte County rounding out the top five at 270.
