New construction projects in Henderson totaled $3 million last month

Several new home-building projects and commercial remodeling work in April resulted in the most robust month for issuance of city and county building permits this year.

Nearly $3.1 million of construction value was authorized last month, including about $1.5 million issued by both the city and county codes offices. That was up from a total of just $1.1 million in April 2020, a figure that was depressed by the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.

So far this year, permits valued at $10.3 million have been issued, up from $7.2 million during the same period in 2020.

Six single-family housing starts were recorded in April — three each in the city and county — compared with a total of four in April 2020.

So far this year, permits have been issued for constructing 21 new homes, up from 20 during the same period last year.
