Construction

City building officials in Killeen issued 180 permits last week.

There were 35 permits issued for the construction of new single-family residences last week. Contractors Carothers Homes will build nine new houses; Saratoga Homes will build seven new homes; both D.R. Horton and J. Clark Homes will build six new houses; both Stylecraft Builders and Tippit Homes will build two new houses; and Manning Homes, Ashford Homes and T.R. Harris Homes will build one new home each.

The new houses will be built on a multitude of streets across the city.

The new homes were given a valuation of $0 in accordance with Texas House Bill 852, which states that cities can no longer ask for or report project values for residential construction permits when determining permit values.

Per the bill, a city “may not require the disclosure of information related to the value of or cost of constructing or improving a residential dwelling as a condition of obtaining a building permit except as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program.”
