BY Gregory Seay

Connecticut's count of issued housing permits started this year better than they finished at the start and end to 2017, fresh Census data shows.

There were 297 permits issued in January to build single- and multi-family housing statewide vs. 290 granted in Jan. 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's monthly survey of 104 municipalities, the state Department of Economic and Community Development said.

In Dec., those municipalities issued 281 housing permits, DECD data shows.
