In today’s video, Illinois REALTORS® Local Governmental Affairs Directors (GADs) share examples of how they faced hot-button issues that surfaced during city council, village board, county board and zoning commission meetings during recent months.

When GADs wrestle with similar issues – ones that would be detrimental to REALTORS® and property owners – they work together to succeed again and again.

Watch this recap of our successes on issues like:

  • community resistance to new multifamily housing development,
  • fire sprinkler requirements,
  • educational impact fees,
  • distribution of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds,
  • restrictive local sign codes and
  • taxes on Airbnb properties.
