Construction numbers remain behind '08 pace

Fort St. John’s construction numbers remain around 70 per cent behind last year’s pace.

City Hall’s October update shows 31 construction permits were issued last month, at a total value of just over $6 million.  Though there were four more permits issued in October 2009 than in the same month in 2008, the value last year was just under $17 million, almost three times as much.

This year’s October numbers bring the 2009 total to $24.3 million worth of construction in the city, which is around 30 per cent of last year’s $80.5 million total heading into November.

There have also been 46 less permits issued so far this year compared to the same ten-month period in 2008, though the one big project inflating last year’s numbers is the Enerplex.

The City’s take from the October permits is $26,650, bringing the year-to-date total to almost $102,000.
