The city of Regina says building permits issued in June are showing growth in single family, multi-attached residential, and apartment units.
The total number of permits in June for new residential dwellings was at 114 compared to 78 for the same month last year.
The total value of building permits issued since the start of the year now stands at 304.5 million dollars.
In a release, Mayor Michael Fougere says “It is encouraging to see growth in new residential development and, in particular, in a diversity of residential dwellings and that new residential builds are a strong indicator of economic stability.”
