Figures behind increased city permits and inspection revenue

Yesterday we reported on increases in fees collected by Knoxville for inspections, plan reviews and permitting. A few folks in building, real estate and in elected office told us what figures show – it’s expected to be the best year since the recession for building in Knoxville, according to revenue from fee collections.

And that’s with a fee schedule that hasn’t changed since 2002. Here’s a historical accounting of those fee collections:
