MIDLAND -- The city of Midland continues to grow, and according to officials, their building permit value has more than doubled this year.
This means that more people are applying for building permits, and officials credit the increase to corporations expanding, and apartments and houses being built.
Last year at this time, the city's building permit value was around $339 million, this year it's up to over $833 million.
That's a 145 percent increase.
