Hamilton hits $1B mark in construction
By STAFF REPORTConstruction Infrastructure
For the fourth time in the past five years the City of Hamilton has surpassed one-billon dollars worth of construction. And with more than a month to go before the end of the year, and the building permit processing still ongoing, that number will continue to rise.
“These building permits are not all attributable to one sector – there are great numbers in residential, commercial, industrial and institutional categories,” said Neil Everson, director of economic development for the City of Hamilton. “It’s also interesting to point out that the permits represent not just new business, but in fact, many are directly related to business expansion of local companies.”
City manager Chris Murray adds reaching the billion-dollar milestone is a testament to how much residents, businesses and the community are invested in Hamilton.
