New housing permits in Jackson County have remained relatively stable for the past five years, after the numbers took a dip during the recession in 2007.

In 2013, 32 housing permits were issued in Seymour, and 24 were issued in Jackson County, dropping only a few from 2012, when 33 city and 26 county permits were issued.

In 2007, 75 permits were issued in the city, and 52 in the county. In 2004, a total of 167 permits were issued, making it the best year in Jackson County in 12 years.
