Building Permits

Posted by adamvanlin on August 1, 2011

Numbers just released from the U.S. Census Bureau indicate that building permits for Polk County remained at 170 in June.  This is the same number that were taken out for May.  The yearly growth rate of permits now stands at -6%.  After a growth spurt in 2010, permits now seem to be in a mild slump.
