The Oswego housing
market has been on the uptick this year with over 160 housing permits issued by
Village administrator Steve Jones said that as of Aug. 20 the Village had issued 163 new building permits in Oswego. 86 of those are for single-family homes, 73 for attached single-family homes and four are for senior housing.
Jones added that the Village might even see in excess of 200 permits this year based on how many have been applied for already.
Several subdivisions hold the majority of those housing permits.
Community Development Director Rod Zenner said that the Prescott Mill subdivision is close to done. Hunt Club has almost 10 permits right now, but it is not full and still has plenty of room.
