However, the value of permits taken out in March stood at $11.1 million, down slightly from $11.3 million over the same month in 2018.

At $12.3 million over 23 permits, construction of new single-family homes has led the way. Of that total, 11 permits adding up to $9 million worth of work were taken in out March.

The next busiest category, year-to-date, was multiple-family homes at $7.5 million over 11 permits. None were taken out in that category in March.
