Builders aren't pulling many more permits in Lee County than they did a year ago.
Despite indications of a better winter home-selling season, builders aren't pulling many more permits in Lee County than they did a year ago, according to the Lee County Department of Community Development.
Builders pulled 23 permits for single-family homes in Lee County in November, four more than the 19 they pulled in the same month one year ago.
Commercial-construction activity also remains depressed. Builders pulled commercial permits worth $1.4 million in November, up from $1.2 million in November 2009.
