That ques- tion was answered with an exclamation point in 2016 as the City experienced a record 521 home starts, 86 more than its previous high in 2003. The number of permits issued and their valuations also shattered previous records with 5,292 and $284,839,502, respectively. Valuations included more than $130 million in residential permits and more than $118 million in commer- cial permits. The department collected $1,533,912 in permit fees, more than doubling the previous high set in 2006. It marked the first time collected permit fees surpassed $1 million. The boom challenged the City’s building inspectors to keep pace. They proved up to the task with 18,961 inspec- tions – a 42% increase over the previous record high in 2015.
