To say that 2019 was a good year for construction in Goderich would be an understatement.
Even though last year's 87 construction approvals were 16 fewer than were issued in 2018, their value rang in at $24.7 million.
That compares with $7.5 million, on the 103 building permits issued the year before.
Residential permits represent the highest value in 2019, with 60 approvals worth $13.6 million.
Last year's 14 commercial building permits and three industrial permits each represent just over $5 million in value.
