Construction Development Update
Through the 2020 Construction season, the Building Department issued:
- 448 building permits
- 245 electrical permits
- 327 mechanical permits
- 222 plumbing permits
These permit numbers represent $35,019,121 of construction value spent in our community. This is up approximately 5% from 2019 and demonstrates exponential growth in one- and two-family dwellings, multi-family dwellings and in the commercial sectors of the DeWitt and Grand Ledge areas. The DeWitt Township Building Department performs building services for the City of Grand Ledge and the City of DeWitt. This growth and the associated tax base help, among other things, schools, walkways, public safety, (such as police and fire departments) parks and public spaces.
We anticipate the 2021 construction season to be equally active and robust. If you have any questions or would like to discuss any of the numbers in this article, contact the Building Department at 517-668-0278.
