Municipal Building Permits

With building permits issued by the city of Yankton so far this year valued at about fifty-seven million dollars local officials are pleased with the amount of growth in the community.

While thirty-four million dollars of the figure is directly tied to the new water treatment plant project Community Planning Director Dave Mingo says permits for housing units have remained strong after a record year in 2016.

Mingo says while Westbrook Estates is the most obvious example of new residences, there has been a number of other housing developments throughout the community as well.

When looking at building permit statistics Mingo says the more important numbers are trends over periods of five to ten years instead of annual reports.
