The city has fallen slightly off last year’s record-set­ting pace when it comes to build­ing per­mits.

As of the end of May, 181 per­mits for $55.2 mil­lion worth of work have been taken out so far this year, just $525,658 be­low the level reached by the same point last year when 216 per­mits were is­sued. Dur­ing May, 56 per­mits for $11.6 mil­lion were is­sued, com­pared to 44 per­mits for $15.4 mil­lion for the same month in 2019. Most of the dif­fer­ence is re­lated sin­gle­fam­ily homes. Nine per­mits for $5.6 mil­lion were is­sued for that cat­e­gory last month, down from 17 for $9.1 mil­lion dur­ing May 2019.

Sig­nif­i­cant projects for which per­mits were is­sued last month in­clude one for an in­dus­trial build­ing, worth $1.75 mil­lion, and three for com­mer­cial build­ing al­ter­ations, ad­ding up to $1.8 mil­lion.
