GOSHEN — Goshen city offices have processed permits for close to $67 million worth of building activity so far this year.
It’s a higher-than-average number that still trails the record construction boom of 2017.
The value of permits issued by the Building Department through the end of September, given in construction costs cited by contractors, is about $66.8 million. That’s $25 million higher than the average for this period in any given year, according to Community Development Director Mark Brinson.
“To put this in perspective, the total annual permits has ranged from $20 million to $111 million over the past 10 years, with 2017 being the highest,” he said.
