Site Selection is a trade publication for site-selection consultants, corporate decision-makers, and economic developers. Site Selection’s Top Micropolitan rankings are based on qualifying new or expanding projects that create a minimum capital investment of at $1 million, create at least 50 new jobs or add at least 20,000 SF of new floor area. In compiling its list, Site Selection considered 575 micropolitan communities across the United States. A micropolitan area is defined as a community serving as a regional trade center that has a population of more than 10,000 people but less than 50,000.
“While 2016 presented many challenges, such as the closing of the Safelite Auto Glass facility in Enfield, we have worked diligently to provide an environment to support new job creation and investment and expansion of our existing business and industry,” commented Vernon Bryant, Chairman of the Halifax County Board of Commissioners. “2017 promises to be a great year.”
