“Single-family housing permits in the Central Valley markets we serve have fallen sharply from 4,905 in the first quarter of 2007 to only 1,877 in the first quarter of 2008. At these greatly reduced volumes, we are no longer able to justify the costs associated with operating these two facilities.”
