COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT MONTHLY UPDATE

October represented the City’s second most active month for building in 2019. The monthly building permit valuation for October was $1.8 million higher than the 2019 monthly average of $3.1 million. October’s activity has helped bring 2019’s average monthly permit valuation to more than 2018’s average. This increase in building permit valuation was a result of permits being pulled for seven new, single-family houses. The Planners took in applications for a three-unit condominium; two new, single-family houses; and three accessory dwelling units. The Community Preservation staff opened 125 cases in October, nearly 78 percent were opened proactively by staff. In October they completed their canvassing for palm trees with excessive amount of dead fronds. The full Community Development Department Update can be VIEWED HERE
