Census: Harrisburg-Carlisle building permits up 40 percent through Q1

Residential building activity has been strong so far this year in the Harrisburg-Carlisle area.

The U.S. Census Bureau is reporting 288 residential permits in the area through March, which is up about 40 percent compared to permits through March 2014.

And the value of those permits is up nearly 20 percent at $51.4 million, according to the Census.

The same cannot be said of the Lancaster County, Lebanon County and York-Hanover areas, where permit reporting has been sluggish so far.

The Census data for March shows just 16 permits for Lancaster County, 19 for Lebanon County and 16 for York-Hanover.

Last year, there were 111, 69 and 110 residential permits for those metropolitan areas, according to the Census.

Residential building permits in the midstate dipped 16 percent last year, according to the preliminary 2014 report from the U.S. Census Bureau.
