Lethbridge has seen a slight drop in new home construction numbers so far this year, mainly due to a decline in multi-family units. Ground has broken on 266 homes in the city, down from 316 compared to the first five months of last year. With multi-family construction seeing a small decline, construction of single detached homes in Lethbridge is up this year over last.
