Home permits plummet in 2008
Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer
For the third year in a row, permits for single family home permits issued in New Prague took a drop.
Only six were issued in 2008, down from 23 in 2007 and 88 in 2006. The city hit a peak of 126 permits in 2005.
While the struggling economy is a factor in the downturn, New Prague Planning Director Ken Ondich said an added factor is the Parish Home situation.
Parish Marketing built a large number of houses in New Prague's southeast portion in 2006 and 2007 using straw buyers.
