The number of building permits for single-family residences in October dropped to 15 from 27 last month, according to information from the city.

Despite that decrease, 2012 has been a much better year for the housing market than 2011.

Comparing the two years month-by-month, every month but January this year saw substantially more permits issued than the same month in 2011. 

In April 2011, for instance, only four permits were issued but 40 permits were issued in April of this year. 

Even October’s decrease reflects the improving economic climate. In 2011, only three permits were issued.

This year the city is averaging 25.4 permits per month. In 2011, the city averaged 10 permits per month.
