Make Gains at the State Level
In 2015, the North Carolina General Assembly signed into law SB 25, a law that prohibits local governments from enacting ordinances that control design and aesthetics — including the type of siding used — of one- and two-family dwellings. If you think this legislation is necessary in your state, consider sharing this information with your local HBA.
It's easy to start taking a more active role in local government, ensuring your decision to choose vinyl siding isn't impacted by rules and regulations. In our Advocacy Kit, we put together a list of five key steps to evaluating local ordinances and influencing change. Here's a quick overview of the steps:
- Look Up Ordinance Language on Municipal Websites
- Determine the Scope of New Ordinances that May Affect Vinyl Siding
- Contact the Local Planner and Schedule a Meeting
- Attend Public Hearings to Stay in the Know
- Reach Out. Be Heard!
