Strong first quarter for construction in city

The value of new residential and commercial construction in Bettendorf totaled $10.46 million during the first three month of 2001, up nearly 70 percent from last year's $6.16 million.

While the value of new residential construction was up only 13 percent ($6.88 million versus $6.06 million for the first quarter of 2000), commercial construction was up significantly thanks to the new St. Katharine's St. Mark's College Preparatory School expansion and the new Life & Family Coalition facility.

Actual single-family residential units under construction in the first three months fell compared to last year with 29 single-family residential permits issued compared to 36 in 2000.
