The City of Fort St. John issued 11 building permits in December, which provided seven dwellings, and totaled a value of $7,499,000 in new buildings. Five of those were commercial, three were single family units, two were duplexes, and one was a garage/renovation permit.
The permit with the highest construction value for the year was a $9.6 million permit, given to Argus Properties, to build a 90-room Hilton Home2 hotel.
