Housing permits for the construction of single-family homes in Sylvania Township reached 106 last year, an increase over the previous year’s total of an even 100.
The number 100 is thought of as an unofficial sign reflecting healthy local economic activity.
John Crandall, chairman of the Sylvania Township trustees, said, “That’s a good sign,” particularly when you consider Covid-19’s effect on the economy overall.
He and others had earlier voiced concerns about the potential of a negative impact the virus might cause township government.
In addition to the number of permits, there was also an increase in the cost of the average price of homes to be built. Last year the average was $348,127, compared to the average of $307,611 in 2019.
