Steinbach mayor Chris Goertzen was pleased with what he saw on Tuesday night, as city council reviewed building permit stats for the first quarter of 2018.

Permits issued in March were valued at a total of nearly $1 million, bringing the value of permits issued by the city to $7.3 million so far this year.

Another four housing units were added in the month, bringing the year-to-date total to 13.

"$7.3 million the first quarter is very encouraging," the mayor said, following council’s regular meeting.

While 13 housing units is a huge figure, the mayor said it was a good start at a slower time of the year for construction. Anecdotally, he said there is evidence of more development on the way.

"We’re hearing a lot of discussion about potential growth in our city in the next year, whether it’s industrial, commercial or multi-family and single family, we’re hearing and seeing a lot of interest from developers and other businesses that are interested in our city," he said.
