More and more families continue to move into their new homes across the community.

As of October 5, over 80 per cent of properties destroyed in the Horse River wildfire are somewhere along in their construction process.

This amounts to 2,105 development permits being approved.

As for completed rebuilds, 797 dwellings have finished work and have been given the green light from the municipality.

This represents nearly 31 per cent of structures destroyed in the wildfire.

In past interviews with Mix News, Mayor Don Scott and the Recovery Task Force both stated they hoped to see around 1,000 rebuilds by the end of the year.
