Speaking to council on Tuesday, Yeargain said he was working to provide different forms of housing to meet the city’s needs.

“We are trying to solve a housing problem and, as we have said in the past, we know we cannot do it in a one-dimensional way,” Yeargain said.

In July, Yeargain, who works as a land use planning manager for Neill Grading & Construction Co., said the plan was to begin construction of the townhouses and part of the offices next year. .

Deputy City Manager Rodney Miller also discussed residential and business growth trends during his quarterly financial presentation spanning July through September.

The city saw a decrease in the number of residential permits in the first three months of the fiscal year – 98 permits this year compared to 123 permits in the same period last year.

Miller attributed this decrease to timing.

“If you take a three month period and a three month period, one will be higher, the other will be lower,” Miller said. “I don’t feel any slowdown in residential or commercial activity. I think we’re going to be very, very happy this year.

The value of residential permits has increased from $ 11.2 million last year to $ 10.7 million this year.
