Residential Construction Booming

Residential Construction Booming
Since 2007 Melfort has experienced significant growth in building permit values and this trend continues. City of Melfort Building Official Herb Marshal reported “Residential building permits for the first half of 2013 are double of what they were last year.” According to the June Building Report presented to City Council, residential permit values to date are over 8.5 million dollars compared to 3.9 million at the same time last year.
 
These permits represent a total of 50 new living units. The current value of residential permits is the highest ever at this point in the year and with the number of residential projects pending, for which permits have not been yet issued, it is possible 2013 will be a record year for new home construction.
 

City of Melfort Community Development Manager stated “There are literally new homes under construction in every neighborhood in the community, including Creekside, Melfort’s newest residential estate neighborhood, where there are three new homes currently being built.” Lutz goes on to state “Residential construction is an indicator of the vitality of a community. You will typically see a corresponding jump in commercial development 12 – 18 months following strong residential performance. With the growth in the city and our strong local economy we expect this to be the case in Melfort.”
