Permits for construction of single-family homes in Sylvania Township have hovered just under–and once at–100 annually over the last few years.
Year-end figures for 2018 show a dramatic increase, ending the year at 123.
Karlene Henderson, manager of the zoning and planning office, said the increase is not due to any single subdivision or development, but is an across-the-board interest in home building in the township.
The total value of the homes to be built is about $30 million.
In 2017, 93 permits were issued with a total valuation of about $22 million.
The most recent year the township exceeded 100 permits was 2006, when 134 were issued. The lowest number recently was 28 issued in 2009.
