About the Urban Council

CHBA’s Urban Council is focused on issues that affect how our communities grow and develop.  These include municipal infrastructure investment; new home taxes, fees, levies and charges; development regulations; and, the important link between residential development and community prosperity.

Comprised of representatives from CHBA’s largest local Associations plus additional regional HBA representatives, Urban Council works towards a coordinated approach to urban issues at the national, provincial and local levels.

The Urban Council provides policy advice to CHBA Board of Directors.

Not in My Backyard

This short video was provided to the CHBA Urban Council by CHBA – Newfoundland and Labrador.  It illustrates one method of addressing “Not in My Backyard” attitudes in a balanced and positive way.  It does not represent a CHBA National position, but may be of value to local organizations as a conversation-starter.
