Construction activity in Whitehorse was down between October and December last year compared to the same period in 2014, according to recent statistics.
Based on an administrative report presented to city council on Monday evening, the total construction dollar value for the period in 2015 was $17,576,403.
That’s down from $42,468,007 during the same months in 2014.
Pat Ross, manager of planning and building services with the City of Whitehorse, said the numbers don’t tell the whole story.
The previous three quarters for 2015 were each better than in 2014, he said.
“What really helped pump the figures up (in late 2014) were the various projects that were underway in the city,” he said.
“That includes construction at the new F.H. Collins (Secondary School), the 20 residential units on Aksala Drive in Whistle Bend and the 48-unit seniors complex on Front Street.”
