Commercial sector pushes permit values past October 2016RDCA-Admin
Building permit values last month surpassed values for the same month last year, with commercial permits leading the way.
Commercial permits in October, valued at $10.2 million, nearly tripled the value of commercial permits for October 2016.
For total permits in all sectors, 93 permits were issued last month for a value of $15.7 million, compared to 80 permits issued in October 2016 for a value of $13 million. Although all sectors have had a strong showing in the last several months, overall permit values for the year to date still lag behind 2016 totals.
