NOTE: The County's report includes ALL types of housing, but my analysis is limited to single family detached (SFD) homes, as those are a leading indicator of future enrollment growth for Albemarle County Schools.
During Jan-Dec 2005, SFD building permits were issued as follows in Albemarle's six magisterial districts:
210 (37.8%) in White Hall
122 (21.9%) in Scottsville
89 (16%) in Samuel Miller
82 (14.7%) in Rivanna
43 (7.7%) in Rio
10 (1.8%) in Jack Jouett
From my website you can download a view of this data by magisterial district.
NOTE: For SFD permits above, 51.6% were in rural areas. However, for ALL building types, 35.6% of 2005 building permits were in rural areas, down from 46.9% in 2004.
The next largest areas of SFD growth during 2003-2005 were as follows
