CHART: New home construction permits

June 5, 2012 | 7:59 p.m. CDT
New home construction permits have increased slightly since last year. Shown below are the numbers of single-family detached permits in Columbia and the single-family residential permits in Boone County. The data represented is through April of each year because the May data for 2012 is not available yet. There is a reasonable correlation between the increase in 2010 and the tax-credit program, according to Pat Zenner, development services manager of the Columbia Community Development Department.
