The surge last year in single-family housing permits in Sylvania Township has abated, but the value per dwelling has shot up substantially over that preceding year.
Through September of this year, the township has issued 74 permits for the construction of single-family homes, compared to 97 permits issued through the same period last year.
Daryl Graus, manager of the township planning and zoning office, told township trustees that last year’s boom in permits for single-family houses appears to have been an anomaly with this year’s numbers more in line with other recent years.
In 2015 there were 73 such permits issued by the end of September, 75 were issued in that time frame in 2016, and 69 such permits in 2017.
Last year there had been 97 permits issued by the end of September. The year ended with a total of 123 permits for single-family houses issued.
The value of each dwelling this year is an average of $326,215, well above the average value last year which through September was $253,511.
