COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEVELOPMENT

CDD MONTHLY REPORT

The Community Development Department has released its monthly report. The report demonstrates that construction activity was slightly less in July 2021 compared to the previous year. However, the year-to-date activity continues to show a strong increase over the previous year. The first eight months of 2021 saw a 43% increase in building permits issued compared to the same period last year. The valuation of work done under these permits has also increased 40% over last year (year-to-date). The scale of new projects continues to be mainly smaller projects such as accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and home additions. In July, the City’s planners took in five applications for accessory dwelling units, two home additions, exterior improvements to a restaurant, and a conditional use permit application for a performing arts school. 67 community preservation cases were opened in July.
