Home permits record

Lee County has sizable February surge

Fueled by a frenzied real estate market, single-family home permits issued in unincorporated Lee County surged to a record-breaking 782 in February.

That was on top of the 746 issued in January, itself a record-breaking month, and far more than the 466 issued in February 2004. In Cape Coral, 567 permits were issued in February compared to a record-breaking 601 in January and 383 in February 2004.

The total value of permits for January and February exceeded $1B, a remarkable figure considering the county's annual total was $2B just two years ago.
