New record set! Leander issues over 1,000 home permitsNew record set! Leander issues over 1,000 home permitshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=24112014-11-20T06:46:00Z2014-11-20T00:00:00Z

LEANDER - The City of Leander has issued more than 1,000 permits for new homes this year — setting a new record for the city — and the number is still climbing.

City staffers said by the end of 2014 the number of permits could exceed the city’s total permits issued from 2009–2012.

The demand is leaving staffers struggling to keep up and planning to reorganize the Leander Building Inspection Department.

From 2009–2011 the City of Leander issued builders 943 single-family housing permits.

In 2012, the city issued 418 permits, and in 2013 the city issued 666 permits. As of Oct. 31, the city’s issued permits in 2014 had reached 1,016.

The growth in single-family housing development is not in specific areas but throughout the city, such as in Northside Meadows northwest of Old FM 2243 and US 183, the Villas at Vista Ridge on Bagdad Rd. and Travisso on FM 1431, according to City Manager Kent Cagle.
