The number of permits for new multifamily housing units in Orange County issued during January, 356, was the lowest monthly total in more than 3 years. That number is also a 7% drop from the previous January. The most significant declines took place in the cities of Anaheim and Irvine. On the other hand, there was a large increase compared to January, 1988 in the number of such permits issued for projects in the county's unincorporated areas. Here is the city-by-city look from January, 1989, compared to January, 1988:
