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.
Cathy Scott, Executive Director of the Halifax County Economic Development Commission, says the ranking confirms the Commission's message. "Halifax County has an environment that is encouraging private investment and job creation."
