Good sign — building permits up in Warren


More people in Warren are working on their homes and building new ones, a good sign says the building inspector of economic activity.

For the month of October, building permits were up at least 15 percent from last year, Warren Building Official William Nash said. In all, approximately 50 building permits were issued, from re-roofing jobs to remodels and even new home construction. Earlier months, from the busy spring and summer building season through the fall, were also strong.

Mr. Nash said Tuesday that the increased building activity has been noticeable — "a good sign," he said.
