City has new home start

Something unusual happened in the city in July — a new home start was reported.

That makes two for the city this year, equaling the total through the first six months of 2015, according to the monthly report from the HomeBuilders Association of Cherokee County.

The home is valued at $114,000, according to the report.

Perhaps even more unusual, there were no new home starts in the county in July, compared to eight in July 2015.

Because of July’s numbers — or lack thereof — the county now trails by two (51-49) the number of new home starts compared to 2015.

The project to convert a former strip mall into a truck parking lot for the QT center on Hyatt Street was the largest commercial permit in the county in July at a cost of nearly $700,000.

In July, the county had 21 mobile home permits, down one from the same month a year ago.
