2013 Annual Report

Wells Alderman, 2013 President Remarks
I was honored to serve as the 50th President of the Home Builders Association of Fayetteville. Our events were well attended by members, the golf tournaments doubled their net income, and our PAC donations enabled us to participate in the local election of a new mayor and 7 new city council positions. We also remained very involved in UDO amendment process ultimately saving our members money down the road.  I would like to thank the board of directors, committee chairs, and all the volunteers who donated their time, treasure and talents to the HBA Fayetteville.

HBAF held 8 Member Mixer meetings featuring speakers on a variety of topics and opportunities to network with other members. Other events held during the year: Carolina Home Show, Casino Night, spring and fall Golf Tournaments, 3 education seminars. The HBAF remained involved in the Unified Development Ordinance amendments and had success with many amendments being passed by City Council.
The success of Casino Night allowed the HBAF to donate  $7,500 to Fayetteville Urban Ministries. The proceeds were used to further the mission of their Nehemiah Project which assists the less fortunate with construction problems like roofs, ramps and leaks. The HBAF also donated $1,000 to the Linda Lee Allan Legacy Fund. This fund was established in Linda Lee Allen’s name and helps with economic development by bringing new businesses to our community. 
City of Fayetteville Offers Stormwater Fee Incentive Program

(Fayetteville, N.C. January 3, 2014) – Commercial, industrial and multifamily property owners in Fayetteville may be credited a portion of their City stormwater fee if they manage their stormwater runoff through onsite water quality or quantity structural Best Management Practices. Some owners may be eligible to receive as much as an 80 percent fee credit if they meet one, two or all of three requirements.

Requirements include: 
  • Having an onsite stormwater detention or retention pond that reduces the quantity of stormwater runoff from the property that is designed and maintained according to the standards of the City of Fayetteville’s Stormwater Control Ordinance 
  • Having an onsite Best Management Practice (BMP) that reduces the impact of pollution on water quality and meets the design and maintenance standards in the City of Fayetteville’s Stormwater Control Ordinance. A BMP temporarily stores and/or treats urban stormwater runoff to reduce flooding, remove pollutants and provides other amenities 
  • Being classified as industrial and is covered by either an individual or general National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) industrial permit. 
Industrial property owners can get up to an 80 percent credit by complying with all three requirements. Commercial and multifamily property owners can receive as much as a 60 percent credit on their stormwater fees.

In order to receive the fee credit, owners must apply for the incentive by April 15 and have a completed, functioning stormwater facility. The facility will be inspected by the City to ensure it meets regulations. Facilities must be designed and certified by a professional engineer licensed in N.C. To ensure that the engineer is licensed, owners can log and go to license lookup.

Upon approval of the stormwater facility and application, the credit will be reflected in the annual billing of the stormwater fee in August. The fee credit is available annually as long as the BMP is properly maintained and continues to meet City criteria.

Individuals or businesses wishing to apply for the incentive can stop by the Engineering & Infrastructure desk on the first floor of City Hall, located at 433 Hay Street, or by , clicking on “All Stormwater Related Downloads” then “Stormwater Credit Manual for City Users.” For more information, please contact staff with the Stormwater Division at 433-1613.

BUILDER Member Survey

Short survey to help Lowe's strengthen its relationship with NCHBA members
   In 2013, NCHBA celebrated its 50th anniversary of service to its members. Lowe's was an original sponsor of NCHBA back in 1963 and that partnership continues today. Lowe's is committed to strengthening this partnership - not only with NCHBA, but also with our local associations throughout the state.
   In order to better serve your needs as a builder member of NCHBA, Lowe's has designed a short survey which can be completed in less than five minutes. As an incentive, upon completion of the survey, Lowe's will email you a coupon worth $30 off any purchase over $150, which can be redeemed at any one of Lowe's 113 stores across the state (or at any of their 1,700 stores across the nation)! 
  In addition to determining how Lowe's can better serve you as an NCHBA builder member, answers to other survey questions will assist Lowe's corporate leaders to better understand the current relationship that its local stores have with your local association and to make that relationship even stronger.
   Please click on this link to access the survey: 
Your email address will be used ONLY to send you the coupon; it will NOT be used for any other marketing purpose, nor will it be shared with any other entity.
