Poway Construction Improves by 200 Percent

Building permit activity sees impressive jump compared to last week.

Poway construction activity jumped to six new projects, representing a 200-percent increase compared to the previous week.

Commercial tenant improvements accounted for half of the activity this week. New building permits were also issued for a deck/patio project, a new retaining wall, and a new commercial sign.

While "The City in the Country" fell far short of other cities' growth and construction for the week, we were pleased to observe a significant improvement over the previous week.

Poway Patch readers are welcome to interact with our Construction Maps to see more details about what's building in Poway every week.

Mighty Powegians, lend us your ear (and your comments). We really want to interact with you about construction activity in the 92064. Post your comments and questions, we'll be sure to respond.

I wasn't going to comment, but since you asked..... Poway isn't really having weekly boom and busts. Do I need to explain why? Also, the pie charts may not be the best way to visualize or document the amount of construction activity in Poway. Every pie chart is the same size, just divided differently. What information are you really trying to convey? The types of construction or the change in amount of new construction? If it is the latter, you need to add the data over time or year over year and use a different chart.

Chris, Thanks for your comments. You're right when you say that pie-charts are all the same size, just divided differently, but it's those very same divisions that identify the kind and type of construction that is taking place. The boom/bust cycles that we describe are for weekly construction activity. Our charts reflect the percentage increases/decreases from one week to the next. You make a good point about showing aggregate data over a year. In fact, we've done that right here: http://poway.patch.com/articles/special-edition-annual-poway-construction-report#photo-7175953. Thanks again for your comments! Best, Mark
