Your Monthly BIA Riverside Update: April 2021
BIA Riverside Chapter Update
Message From Your Chapter Executive Officer
Spring has arrived and Q1 of 2021 is now behind us. In many ways 2021 stared right where 2020 left off for our industry: optimism for the end of the Covid-19 pandemic is on the rise, home buyer demand remains high but skilled labor shortages and commodities pricing remain a challenge for home builders. However, our members continue to persevere and are delivering the dream of home ownership to families throughout Riverside County.

On the advocacy front the Riverside Chapter continues to engage local jurisdictions on issues critical to our members. With the MSHCP increase set to go into effect on June 30, 2021 we continue to work with our local cities on implementation and appreciate their assistance is setting up systems to allow builders to pre-pay fees in advance of the increase. This effort is helping our members maintain housing affordability for new home buyers. We are also closely monitoring discussions about potential changes to CFD policies. These conversations could have dangerous impacts to home affordability but also our industry’s ability to deliver critical water, road, park and school infrastructure that every community needs and deserves. Finally, our Chapter continues to lead efforts for a safe reopening of the economy as we emerge from Covid-19 and ensure that the essential services our members need continue to be readily available. 

Lastly, Spring is also a time for new beginnings and speaking of new beginnings the Riverside County Chapter of the BIA is excited to partner with the newly named Riverside County CEO Jeff Van Wagenen Jr. Van Wagenen has more than 14 years of public service experience as well as 10 years in the private sector. Our chapter has had a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the County of Riverside and we look forward to growing that partnership under Jeff’s leadership.

As always, if our chapter can be of assistance to you please feel free to contact me directly at [email protected]

The Voters FIRST Act gave this power to California citizens ensuring that new and fair political boundaries are drawn without special interests, politics and political influence.
