All these helped Orange to set an
all-time record for aew construc-
tion. City building permits mo far
in 1959 have amounted to a little
over $6.800.000—more than $2,000,-
000 above the beat previous year.
This year’s total includes around
$2,500,000 for new homes, whidi
have also set a record with 211
permits issued to date.
The pace of commercial and resi-
dential construction in ItSstoohas
set new records on a countywide
basis. Precise figures are not avail-
able. but for the county as a whole,
the total cost of new buildings tor
these purposes is around 120.000,-
000 with well over half of that go-
ing for about L106 new home*.
