Brandon Sees Growth In The Market Place

Brandon Sees Growth In The Market Place
BRANDON, SD -

Brandon's City Administrator says they're issuing fewer remodeling permits and more single family, multi housing and commercial industrial permits. While this year they issued less building permits, they were still able to double their value. 

Brandon has been issuing around 35-40 single family housing permits since the down turn in 2008. But in the past couple of years that number is steadily increasing.

"We issued 357 building permits for a little over $22 million in value compared to $11 million last year. So it's $11 million more this year than last year, which will be added to the tax base. We issued some commercial and industrial building permits. We also used one or two apartment building permits," Brandon City Administrator Bryan Read said.

Read added over the next couple of years, he estimates the trend will continue to grow.

"We're in a great location.  We're the first community when you come in.  We have access to the interstate, our transportation is great.  On our industrial side, we have access to rail and our industrial parks, which is vital. And then we have Sioux falls sitting six miles away, which is a huge draw regionally," Read said.

The value of building permits issued in Rapid City last year was the second-highest in city history. The total value of permits in 2013 was $244.3 million, just short of the 2011 record of $259 million. Rapid City's Community planner says the construction of a few major business ventures and several residential complexes was the main reasons for last year's high permit value.
