17.5 million dollars worth of construction activity took place in Brockton in 2017.
Agriculture led the way with 5.6 million dollar in development followed by 5.4 million in new residential and 3.9 million in new commercial.
The 3.9 million in new commercial represents a huge boom as there was only 75 thousand dollars worth of construction in 2016.
Mayor David Inglis is optimistic 2018 will be just as busy if not busier now that municipality has hired a Community Development Coordinator to help attract new business and industry.
Inglis adds that with the Bruce Power new build project he anticipates even more local construction and business growth in the near future.
All in all, Inglis says 2017 was a good year of growth for Brockton and 2018 is filled with promise.
The new year is already off to a good start as Brockton has just sold another parcel of land in the East Ridge Business Park for a commercial development project.
Over the last three years building activity has remained steady in Brockton hovering between 17.5 and the 18 million dollar mark.
