Layton awards more housing permits

This could be a great year for building homes in Layton. Since reaching "rock bottom" single-family house permit numbers in 2008, including a month where no permits were issued, Layton has continued to issue more permits each year. City officials expect that number to increase again this year. Layton issued 149 single-family home permits in 2010, which was up from 105 permits in 2009. Having already issued 66 permits this year, the city has received several applications in the past two weeks. Ogden Standard Examiner
