Building permits down, value considerably higher
The number of commercial building permits issued in 2008 may have been down compared to 2007, but the value of the commercial property permitted is higher.
Twenty-seven commercial property permits issued in 2008 totaled $17.7 million in value compared to 34 valued at $9.5 million in 2007 according to information provided by the city.
"Commercial structure values are huge compared to last year," Dickinson City Engineer Shawn Soehren said.
