The value of all residential building permits issued in Orange County during the first seven months of this year was 18% higher than for the comparable period last year. Throughout the county, though, there was some unevenness. For example, these valuations acutally decreased for several cities, most notably Stanton and Irvine. On the other hand, there were spectacular increases, led by Villa Park. Following are the values of residential building permits issued through July 1988, compared to the same period in 1987. These valuations include alterations and additions, and are stated in thousands:

PERMIT VALUES DECLINE The value os residential building permits issued in July dropped dramatically after a more or less steady monthly increase since the beginning of the year. Despite the 71% drop between July and June, 1988's year-to-date (January through July) residential valuations are still nearly a quarter of a million dollars ahead of 1987.
