Landlords Business Association
The Landlords' Business Association (LBA) was started in 1989 as a result of a local rent review ballot question, which would have granted the town rent control authority. Our 12 founding members successfully defeated the ballot by developing a real grassroots campaign organization. Today the LBA has over 100 members and continues to lobby state and local agencies and officials for its members. The association serves Franklin and Hampshire county with members in the towns of Ashfield, Bernardston, Buckland, Charlemont, Colrain, Conway, Gill, Greenfield, Heath, Hawley, Leyden, Montague, Northfield, Orange, Shelburne, Shelburne Falls, Sunderland, Turners Falls and Whately.
