Construction values in Grande Prairie continue to lag behind last year’s pace.
126 building permits were issued in April, bringing the year-to-date total to 344, which is actually two more than this point last year.
While the number of permits was nearly one-and-a-half times April 2013, the value is still falling behind.
The 126 permits were worth $20.6 million, while the 88 last year were worth $36.5 million.
That brings 2014’s numbers to $68.4 million, $15 million less than last year.
