Pleasant Hill Sees Massive Growth in September10/10/2017
PLEASANT HILL, Iowa — The city of Pleasant Hill continues to experience significant growth after an influx in building permits during the month of September. In 2016, the City recorded the largest construction year in a decade with $33.4 million in new permits. In one month, the city of Pleasant Hill has over one third of last year’s entire total with $12.1 million in valuation.
“As we continue to see expansive construction in the City of Pleasant Hill, we recognize it stems from our City’s great location and ample land primed for quality development,” said Madeline Sturms, Community Development Director. “We have the perfect environment for intentional growth.”
Residential property accounted for the majority of the new permits’ valuation, largely due to the approval of the Prairie Creek development adding 90 condominiums just east of Highway 65. There were 99 new permits in September totaling a valuation of $12,036,000. Two commercial and industrial projects were also approved.
