In Rogers County, Oklahoma, residential construction is booming. The Rogers County planning and permit officials have issued over $68.6 million dollars in residential construction building permits over the last year. The Rogers County home building industry has grown 30 million over the past 3 years, with growth doubling over the last tow years alone. The growth has been so strong that last week, the County’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved a budget increase of $1.6 million for the Commission.
In comparison to other planning and zoning districts in northeastern Oklahoma, the county ranks fourth in terms of residential construction industry growth. The majority of residential building permits are being issued for the areas of rural Owasso located inside Rogers County. 120 permits were issued in 2013, a significant jump over the 87 issued in 2012. Owasso alone accounts for $90 million of the residential construction revenues for Rogers County over the last three years, with areas outside Owasso accounting for 59.1 million. The Claremore area ranks second in revenue during the same time period, generating $33.2 million since 2011.
Rogers County Planning and Zoning Commission director Larry Curtis credits the county’s improved regulatory infrastructure for some of the growth. “As a planning commission we are doing well with the subdivision regulations, which helps with the new growth process,” Curtis explains, adding that proper regulations are helping Rogers County grow “the right way.”
