(Red Deer, Alberta)
Building permits for September, valued at $7.2 million, decreased compared to September 2015’s estimated value of $13.6 million. Year-to-date values, however, still remain higher for the January to September period with an estimated value of $197.7 million in 2016 compared to $166.7 million in 2015.

Commercial and public remain the strongest sectors, with year-to-date permit values this year significantly exceeding values for the same period last year.

Commercial permits issued for $500,000 in renovations to a dentistry office at 3203 50 Ave. and $400,000 in renovations to an office development at 7780 Edgar Industrial Way contributed to that sector’s strong values in September. Additionally, four fast food restaurant renovations are also underway.

Monthly permit statistics are available on The City’s website at: Red Deer Open Data Catalogue
