From page 1 PSU's estimates are based largely on housing activity. Building activity has remained low this year, although housing starts are slightly ahead of 2011, said Community Development Director Carol Lewis. Last year, the city had three new houses. "It was horrible." Lewis said. Through May, Sweet Home has had four. "There's certainly other stuff going on," Lewis said, but this is the time of year when the city mostly sees remodeling projects. There has been some commercial activity, in- cluding remodeling at O'Reilly's Auto Parts, Thriftway and Safeway, and the construction of a commer- cial building at 800 Long St. Revenue will be up a little as a result, and property values have in- creased by $560,000 in the past two months. Lewis said. "There's not a lot going on, but we're hoping it will get better." Other Census data show that Linn County had a population of 116.672 in 2010. The state had a population of 3.8 million.
