Lee starts up
Lee County was ranked seventh in the nation and second in Florida for the largest increase in housing starts according to a new U.S. Census report.
As the report covers the time period of July 1, 2003 through July 1, 2004, Lee County quite possibly could rank even higher with current data. Cape Coral is on target for 7000 new single family permits for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005. This figure is up from the 4300 permits for the period covered in this census report.
