SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Officials in southwestern Missouri county expect more homes to be built in 2015.

A planning director for Greene County told the Springfield News-Leader (http://sgfnow.co/1BCJFCq ) on Monday that many developers are in the process of getting approval for subdivisions. He says there have been more discussions and plans already in the works for 2015 than in the last five years.

He says he thinks an improving economy is helping add to the increase in expected residential construction.

Revenue for the county’s planning and zoning department comes from fees paid by developers to go through the development, zoning and permitting processes. The department’s revenue is projected to be around $130,000 in 2015, up from the $98,000 it received last year.
