Single-Family Building Permits Hitting 9-Year High
Building permits for homes are picking up, with October the 3rd busiest month of 2014. About 570 permits were issued last month, led by St. Johns County (245) and Duval County (211). Duval’s count was the 3rd time in 5 months it has topped 200 units – after constantly being below 200 every month since 2008. Roger Bull of The Florida Times-Union has the statistics, albeit limited.
