The March 2011 edition of Site Selection magazine has ranked Campbellsville among the 2010 Top Micropolitan areas with three qualifying existing business projects. Out of 576 micropolitan communities in the United States, Campbellsville tied for 41st place. The U.S. Census Bureau defines a micropolitan statistical area as an urban core of at least 10,000 but less than 50,000 population.
“This ranking is evidence of our area’s long-term progress, even through tough economic times,” stated Ron McMahan, executive director of Team Taylor County. “Site Selection magazine is the economic development trade journal for economic developers, site selection consultants, commercial real estate brokers and relocating companies go to for relocation information. We are extremely pleased to make the listing.”
Other Kentucky micro areas to make the listing were Danville (tied for 14th place), Frankfort, Glasgow, Murray and Somerset (all tied for 41st place), followed by Paducah, Corbin, London, Mayfield and Richmond/Berea (all tied for 74th place).
Kentucky also made the magazine’s annual Top States with the Most Top Micros, ranking second with 12 micros, behind Louisiana with 14.
