From a new Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet in Pace to Chaver’s Rock Yard in unincorporated Gulf Breeze, commercial building activity is on track to equal or exceed last year’s totals in Santa Rosa County.
Through the first nine months, the county issued 42 commercial permits, compared with a full-year total of 56 in 2014, when activity soared by about 70 percent from 2013.
What’s more, momentum has picked up since the start of summer. The number of projects permitted in June and August nearly doubled from those same months a year ago.
