COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT MONTHLY UPDATE
For the first half of this year, the City’s Building staff has taken in 200 less building permits than this time last year, but the value of the work being done under all those permits have increased from $19 million to $20 million. However, June of 2019 marked the lowest monthly building permit valuation since 2012. The average monthly building permit valuation over the last five years was $3.8 million. This month building permit valuation was only $812,871.
In June, the Building staff issued permits for one new, single-family house and an accessory dwelling unit (ADUs). Activity at the public counter has decreased. The planning staff took in six applications for new houses, three ADUs, a flag lot subdivision, and a three-unit condominium development. The Community Preservation inspectors opened 133 cases in June, 20 more than last year. So far, only 13 percent of the cases opened were referrals from the public.
