While it’s true that certain land use regulations serve important purposes (i.e., protecting the health, safety, and welfare of residents), their actual implementation can significantly increase construction costs.  Through repeated increases in construction costs, housing affordability then enters the conversation.

Balancing regulatory goals with housing affordability concerns is crucial to promoting sustainable development and housing accessibility.  This balancing act is especially important in states such as Utah where population increases and insufficient housing supply are already taking a toll on housing affordability.

To address these challenges effectively, the State Legislature put into place §10-9a-534 of Utah State Code (as amended) which prohibits the regulations of certain building design elements in an attempt to quell additional or unnecessary increases to construction costs.  

Special Note: The Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman has provided funding for this training program from the 1% surcharge on all building permits in the State of Utah.
