Building permits in 2012 shatter previous records

Mandan’s single-family home construction nearly tripled in 2012 compared to 2011, with permits issued for 179 new homes, an all-time record.

The total new residential units permitted in 2012 nearly doubled, reaching 520 at year-end. Commercial growth also hit a record-smashing level at nearly $50 million in permits issued in 2012 for new buildings, remodeling and additions. This is nearly double the previous record set in 2007.
