WOW, that's all we can say about the last couple of months. Every where we go people are talking about property rights. We think this is due impart to the awareness we are raising via our community town hall presentations and certainly from our members spreading the word to everyone they meet. We had a great amount of interest at our KC Fair booth, and signed up hundreds of members.
Our rights and freedoms are lost only when we do nothing to stop those seeking to take them. Unfortunately property rights has suffered the last 20 years all across the Northwest. NWPOA aims to stop that, but as our County Planning commission witnessed, you the property owners are awakening and in large numbers. Being ignored is no longer and option in Kootenai County.
If you are not a member and are a rural property owner with a conservative outlook, you should consider joining to be kept up to date about issues affecting property owners. Membership is free, click our join-up tab to become a member.
NWPOA represents a broad group of rural; residential, agricultural, timber, and commercial business property owners. We found that there are many governmental, environmental, and special interests forming and creating the regulations that end up getting forced upon us, but nowhere did we find collective representation for rural property owners.
That is changing fast, and we hope to establish regional and county chapters over a 4 state area. If you live in Montana, Idaho, Oregon, or Washington state, join-up with us and then talk to others in your community to see about starting a chapter in your county.
NWPOA's home-base is in Kootenal County and much of the initial activity is by default revolving around property related issues in our county. However, as we grow to a regional force, you can expect a much broader range of topics related to the entire northwest. It is time for every property owner to get involved, and you can do that by actually doing something with your fellow neighbors.
Our goal is to provide many resources regarding several key issues facing property owners, such as regulatory pressure on: Land uses, building permits and building codes, water & septic rights, privacy, property taxes, impact fees and more. Llocally we conduct town hall meetings and address topics important to the area property owners who request them. There is no charge to conduct a town hall meeting in the Kootenai County area, email us at email@example.com if you would like more information.
If you own land/property in the unincorporated areas of the North West, and have a conservative outlook with regards to government intrusion and regulations, then this is your website and this is your alliance.
Our organization is meant to support our interests as property owners. In the last few years our overall property rights have come under an onslaught of ever increasing restrictions, environmentalism, regulations, codes and new taxes/fees, so much so, that many property owners feel we are struggling to keep our heads above water.
The fact is, there are many special interest groups who view our private lands as defacto public property, but just titled (and paid for) in our names. And there are so many new government employees now, they have nothing better to do than write new regulations and codes upon property owners.
Its time to organize, to rise up and defend our rights and our lands. Please join-up today!
