The May 2020 value for building permits totals almost $56 million.
This is down from the same permit granting period of over $104 million in 2019.
As the combined nearly $1 billion in construction winds down at Simplot and Roquette, it is expected permit value totals will also drop.
In this report, the planning district reports new single-family home construction has decreased while new double and multi-unit construction has increased markedly. New farm building construction and repair of farm buildings also increased over the same period last year.
