  Year Accomplishments
2017 On April 7, 2018 the Kansas Supreme Court issued its decision finding the City of Mission's transportation utility fee is an illegal excise tax under Kansas law, a position HAA and co-plaintiffs argued since the lawsuit was first filed in 2012. The Supreme Court directed that the case be remanded back to the original trial court to resolve unsettled issues with regard to the illegal taxes that were collected.
2017 HAA leads a coalition of Kansas City, MO residential rental property owners in discussion with the City's Health Department over a newly proposed business registration and interior inspection program, which ultimately results in holding the issue off of the November, 2017 election ballot.
2016 After five years of continuous litigation, The Mission Kansas "TUF" is currently pending before the Kansas Supreme Court, which heard oral arguments on October 26, 2016
2015 KCMO adopts a "Mandatory Benchmarking" ordinance requiring all significant residential and commercial buildings to phase in property specific energy and water consumption electronic reporting for public scrutiny. HAA, BOMA and other development community participants remain actively engaged in a "rule making" process intended to maximize compliance.
2015 HAA is asked by the City of Overland Park to engage in discussion regarding better regulation of rental properties. Stakeholders representing both large and small landlords, neighborhoods, and codes administrators work together for four months to arrive at a mutually acceptable staff recommendation to be presented to the City Council for consideration.
