Increased Construction Activity Being Hailed As Indicator Of Economic Growth In Salisbury

Jul 11, 2013 -- 10:02am

Increased construction activity is being considered a sign of economic growth in Salisbury.

Mayor Jim Ireton and Director of Building, Permits and Inspections William Holland announced that the city has seen a 775 percent increase in estimated costs of construction, and a 144 percent increase in permitting revenues between Fiscal Years 2011 and 2013. Holland says those increases indicate a rebounding economy in Salisbury.

Earlier this year, Mayor Ireton introduced his “Let’s Do Business Salisbury” initiative to get more business owners to open up shop in downtown in an effort to not only create more jobs for residents, but to also revitalize Salisbury’s downtown area.
