Alterations lead February building activity
Building permits issued for residential and commercial alterations saw a 104% increase in the value of construction over this time last year with 119 permits issued for residential, commercial and industrial alterations. Overall, the total number of building permits issued this month was 159, a slight decrease from the 172 building permits issued at this time last year.
Building permits for the first two months of the year remain strong with over
$46 million in construction value for the 324 building permits issued. Overall, multi-attached dwellings and commercial permits continue to grow in 2018, showing a 60% and 27% increase, respectively.
“It is always encouraging to see our residents and business owners re-investing in their properties,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “The diversity of construction happening in our city has helped to keep the overall value of permits increasing so far in 2018.”
