Multi-family Housing Permits

February 16, 1989|Clipboard researched by Susan Davis Greene and Dallas Jamison / Los Angeles Times; Graphics by Doris Shields / Los Angeles Times

The number of permits issued for multi-family housing units dropped 23% in 1988, compared to 1987. Even though 59% of the permits were issued during the first six months, a slow first quarter put 1988 far off the 1987 pace and there was no second-half recovery. The vast majority of the countywide decline took place in the unincorporated areas, but the cities of Santa Ana, Irvine and Laguna Beach also had major drops. Tustin and San Clemente led the gainers among cities. Here is the city-by-city picture:
