Residential building permits in central and West Jackson areas soared in the first quarter of 2016, up 37 percent over last year’s numbers and 131 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2014.
Some 210 residential permits were issued January – March this year, up from 153 during the same period last year and 91 in 2014. (The data doesn’t include the City of Commerce in East Jackson.)
The growth in building permits perhaps signals that the local economy has rebounded from the recession.
