The number of permits issued last month exceeds the number in July of last year, but permit values are lagging behind.
There were 132 total permits issued last month, compared to 100 in July 2016, but the value was pegged at $9.2 million last month compared to $91.3 in July 2016 – thanks to last year’s permit for the $76.5 million Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.
Year-to-date totals for residential and industrial permits are keeping pace with the January to July period in 2016.
Notable construction projects include a permit valued at $1.4 million for an entrance chamber for the North Red Deer Regional Wastewater Services Commission to connect a new sewer line to The City of Red Deer's Waste Water Treatment Plant; a new five bay industrial warehouse valued at $1.2 million; and a permit valued at $375,000 for a new Freshii restaurant.
Note: Due to a change in the method of reporting for 2017, no permit numbers or values were recorded in Industrial or Public categories in City public service announcements (PSAs) until now. View the correct information for January through June 2017 here. We apologize for the error.
