At the same time, Prior Lake doesn’t want to blunt the renewed interest in homebuilding by firms like Terra Engineering.

Single-family permits fell to about 60 in 2009 compared with more than 100 a year in the housing construction boom that preceded the recession. Homebuilding has begun to recover, with the city recording 134 permits last year, according to the Builders Association of the Twin Cities.

Boyles said the building activity has begun to draw down the city’s inventory of lots, creating more need for new developments like the one at Markley Lakes.

“You reach a point where you need to start making more lots,” he said.
