JUNEAU- Home construction in Juneau is up for the first six months of the year.
There's been an increase in building permits for single family homes and multi-family units between January and June.
Hal Hart is the community development director for the city and borough of Juneau. He says the city has issued 43 construction permits since January for 89 residences.
Six residences have been added to Juneau's housing inventory through what Hart calls conversions to existing single family homes.
Hart says he expects proposed apartment or condominium projects to qualify for building permits later this year.
One of the borough assembly's goals is increasing affordable housing. But Hart says that particular housing sector isn't growing.
