SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - The city of Spearfish in western South Dakota has set a record for the number of building permits that have been issued in 2014.

The Rapid City Journal (https://bit.ly/12Nn2zn ) reports that Spearfish has also set a record for the total valuation of development in the community. Officials have issued 451 building permits valued at more than $45 million through November, surpassing the previous record of 400 building permits granted in 2013, and the $44 million valuation mark set a decade ago.

City Building Official Tom Paisley says Spearfish is a vibrant community that is growing. He adds that more construction projects are planned and heavy equipment will continue to be seen in Spearfish in 2015.

The planned projects include renovations to a hospital and a new elementary school.
