Midwest City reported a 211 percent increase in single-family building permits, to 28 from just nine issued in September 2001. So far, the city has issued 139 permits compared to 88 for the first nine months of 2001.

Also seeing growth was Moore, which said permits issued rose 60 percent to 40 from 25 a year earlier. The September permits pushed the year-to-date total for the city to 339 from 239 issued during the first nine months of last year.

In all, the 18 areas surveyed by the association reported issuing 485 permits for single-family residences in September, up 54 percent from the 315 issued in September 2001. For the first nine months of this year, building permits totaled 4,057, up 24.2 percent from the 3,267 reported for the same period a year earlier.
