​ABILENE – Abilene's commercial development economy has had a strong first six months in 2017, and the numbers back up that assessment.

Through the first six months of the year, Abilene's planning and development services office has approved 47 commercial building permits, compared to just 29 through the first six months of 2016, according to the city's construction valuation summary.

Those 47 permits this year​​ are valued at $41 million, compared to last year's $33 million.

While this level of business development is nothing new, developments like Abilene is seeing could have long term benefits to more than just the business owners and the large corporations soon to call Abilene home.
