PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich.—Hammers and saws are busy once again in Plainfield Township, as home and business construction picks up with the improving economy.
“Plats of land that have been on hold for years are coming back to life this spring,” said Bill Fischer, community development director for Plainfield Township. “Many of these plats already have the infrastructure built; subdivisions that have roads and utilities, water and sewer. And now, finally, the builders are feeling confident in the market and moving forward with construction.”
From Jan. 1 through the month of April, construction crews worked on homes and businesses in the township totaling more than $5.5 million in value. Fischer says the long winter delayed many building permit applications until late April, so that investment only reflected a few weeks of investments.
