Bullitt County History

Building Permits 1990-2009

The United States Census Bureau provides Annual New Privately-Owned Residential Building Permits for states and counties. The information for Bullitt County during the twenty year period from 1990-2009 is given below.

While not all building permits result in structures actually built, these figures give a good approximation of the growth of residential housing in the county during that period.

In the chart below, "1F" identifies single family buildings/units, "2F" identifies two-family, etc.
