Residential housing permits on the rise
A recent report by the Home Builders Association of Central Ariznoa showed that residential building permits in Peoria jumped 21 percent from 2013 to 2014; one of only four cities in Maricopa County to show an increase. The other cities were Paradise Valley, Queen Creek, and Scottsdale. Most of the growth in Peoria was in the Vistancia area. Plans are underway in Vistancia to expand its amenities, including a community park, a commercial core, and retail hubs.
