Grande Prairie is continuing to witness a steep drop in the number of new home builds this year.
April numbers from Canada Mortgage and Housing show that there were just 11 housing starts in the city last month, compared to 59 in April of 2013.
Over the first four months of the year, there have been 57 homes constructed in Grande Prairie, compared to 160 at this time last year.
On a positive note, April finally saw the construction of some multi family units.
The two built last month are still well behind the 10 built in April of last year, and the 61 built over the first four months of last year.
