PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Cindy Monnin,
Friessen Construction
The 55th annual Sioux Empire Home ShowTM was another big success
with attendance at just over 10,000 people on March 7-9, 2014. It’s an
honor to be part of an association that organizes such a great event!
Just like all of our committees, the Home Show Committee spent hours
in the past year preparing for this event. Thanks to everyone who gave of
their time to attend the meetings and share their valuable input.
Another vital part of the Home Show™ success is the volunteers. Thank
you so much to the many members who volunteered their time to help at
the show, whether during set up, show hours or tear down.
The exhibitors at this year’s show went above and beyond to display the
best of the best. It was great to see all the new products and learn about
the newest services.
Last but most certainly not least, thank you to our event sponsors. South
Dakota Housing Development Authority was the gold sponsor and Xcel
Energy sponsored the workshops. We appreciate your ongoing support of
our premier Home Show event.

MEETING WITH
CONGRESSIONAL
DELEGATES
Members from across the state met at the
HBASE office on March 18 to meet with
the South Dakota Congressional Delegates and/or their staff.
Over 40 SDHBA members including
many HBASE members discussed issues
related to the housing industry with Rep.
Noem, Sen. Thune and Sen. Johnson.
Advocacy is an extremely vital aspect of
the Home Builders Association as our
collective voice is much stronger than
one individual voice. By continually
visiting with our elected officials we are
able to keep the industry going strong
both locally and nationally.
Thank you to everyone who took the
time to attend the congressional meetings. Your input is greatly appreciated!
City Prepares
for Nuisance
Vegetation
Season
Springtime is the best time to remind
everyone of the Sioux Falls ordinances in
place regarding grass and weed control.
All lawns must be kept mowed below a
height of 8 inches, and all noxious weeds
must be controlled.
This does not apply to vegetation that is
being grown as a crop, livestock pasture,
wildflower display garden, or the right-ofway of rural section roads. Also, the Director of the Parks and Recreation Department can designate certain lands as
“natural areas,” which provides owners
more flexibility in the use of native plantings.
Another exemption that affects homebuilders and developers is vegetation on
unimproved developments. Undeveloped
parcels will still be required to mow a 25foot buffer if the land is adjacent to a
street right-of-way or a developed residential lot. The control of noxious weeds,
most notably thistles is required throughout the city.
Violations can be reported at 978-6900,
or on the city’s web site at
www.siouxfalls.org When the city receives
a complaint about a parcel of land that is
being neglected, we will investigate the
complaint with a site visit. If the complaint
is valid, the property owner will be sent a
courtesy letter asking that the nuisance
be corrected. Generally, property owners
are given seven days to correct the problem, and only one courtesy letter will be
sent on a property per year.
The city will re-inspect the property on or
after the due date. If the problem has not
been corrected, a City Code Enforcement
Officer may issue a $100 citation for the
violation. In addition, the city has contracted with two lawn mowing services and a
spraying company that will correct the
violation. The property owner will be billed
for the work, and if the bill is left unpaid,
the cost will be assessed against the
property.
If you have questions about the City’s
policy regarding nuisance vegetation,
please contact Kevin Smith, Assistant
Director of Planning and Building Services,
at
(605)
367-8888
or
[email protected]
NATIONAL DIRECTOR REPORT
The following report is from Kurt Hanson, HBASE National Director, who recently attended the
NAHB Convention in Las Vegas, NV in February 2014.
Without a voice at the table, the other parts of
the country will have a free hand to concentrate
on issues like hurricane proof framing and
Each year the NAHB and its affiliates spent
earthquake proof construction. While useful for
hundreds of thousands of dollars on research
Florida and California, these efforts are of little

The HBASE asked the Sioux Falls Mayoral

Be sure to read their responses before you cast
your vote. Some questions asked include:
Why are you running Sioux Falls City
Council?
What are the top three policy issues or
challenges facing Sioux Falls?
Should public infrastructure such as
roads, water/sewer systems, schools,

broad-based revenue initiatives or
by fees assessed against a particular
class or group of residents?
Last fall, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced it would reimburse
the
City approximately $10 million for the
work on the City’s levee system. What should the City do with
the extra $10 million?
What role does residential development
play in your vision for the future of
Sioux Falls? Are you supportive of
the Shape Places Zoning Ordinance?
