Dallas BA President Alan Hoffmann, Executive Officer Phil Crone and Director of Government Affairs David Lehde on Jan. 30 took part in a forum discussing the appropriate role of local government in zoning, land use and permitting. Hosted by the American City County Exchange, the forum included local and state officials, as well as members of the development community and policy institutes.

Crone and Lehde spoke on the negative impacts local government can have on housing affordability and local economies if they are not careful when drafting ordinances regarding private property. Alan Hoffmann addressed how cities can be more efficient in the permitting process.
