Permitted to Build

NWA Daily

We’ve seen this week that there is a need for housing in Northwest Arkansas. Here are some numbers to put it all in context.

  • Build: For the first 8 months of 2021, the 4 largest cities in NWA have had more building permits issued than the same amount of time last year by nearly a third. There have been a collective 1,337 residential building permits issued this year through August. 
  • Value: The City of Fayetteville was granted the most permits with 517. Rogers is next with 367. Bentonville received 258, and Springdale, 195. The combined value of permits is over $424m, which is up 46.6% from last year.
