Although it’s understood that one month does not equal a trend, the number of single-family home construction permits issued in January, merited a mention at the most recent meeting of the Sylvania Township trustees.
Darryl Graus, zoning and planning manager for Sylvania Township, told trustees there were 13 such permits issued in the first month of this year, compared to just 3 in January, 2019–an increase of 333 percent.
The average value of each home dropped to $257,000 this year from the average of $300,000 in 2019.
Although the winter months are usually slow for issuing construction permits, activity in January this year was boosted by the beginning of development on a project known as Quarry Ridge on Brint Road east of Mitchaw.
Mr. Graus noted that 9 of the 13 permits issued in January were for that development.
