Since 2014, nearly 350 single-family building permits have been pursued at the Paradise Valley Planning Department, which is in addition to more than 100 permits issued for hotels in the same time period.
Through a public records request, the Independent received Town of Paradise Valley building permits for a 5-year period, between 2014-18, in the form of an Excel spreadsheet spanning hundreds of pages.
A breakdown of building permit records since 2014 include:
347 single-family home permits requested;
132 hotel permits requested; and
13 church permits requested.
Town of Paradise Valley officials say these numbers illustrate a healthy local economy.
