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!
