Construction continues at the Park Place community being built in southern Ontario Wednesday June 21, 2107. The demand for single-family homes in the Inland Empire has fueled the strongest building activity in nearly a decade, according to a new report from the UC Riverside School of Business Center for Economic Forecasting and Development. Single-family home construction in the region hit its highest level (for a quarter) in 9 years, at 2,182 units, in the first quarter. This represents the greatest number of units built since the first quarter of 2008 when 2,242 units were constructed, according to the report. (Will Lester-SCNG/Inland Valley Daily Bulletin)
