Fort St. John issued six permits for construction worth close to $1 million in January.
That's up year-over-year after the city issued no permits in the first month of 2019.
Last month, the city issued permits for two single family homes with suites at 8612 and 8616 85 Street, worth a combined $474,240 in construction value.
Commercial permits were issued for an accessory building at the new Canadian Tire development on Old Fort Road, valued at 68,000, and to BD Canada for ongoing renovations at the 96 Street strip mall across from the Pomeroy Sport Centre, valued at $350,000.
One permit was also issued for an addition to a home on 105 Street, and for a commercial renovation by Surerus on 109 Street.
The city brought in $6,106 from the sale of building and other permits and fees last month.
