DARKE COUNTY – Site Selection, a leading economic development trade magazine, has named Greenville among the nation’s leading micropolitans once again, ranking the city 13th.
“That’s some very good news,” Greenville Mayor Mike Bowers said during Tuesday’s city council meeting. “We actually are first in the west central Ohio region for a number of projects, and we’ll continue to work with all our companies to meet the needs that they may have.”
“It just proves what we’ve been saying for the last three years: Greenville and Darke County are all on the move in a positive direction,” said Darke County Commissioner Mike Stegall. “When you’re recognized nationally by people who do this for a living, its just an outstanding achievement.”
A micropolitan area is a rural county whose largest city does not exceed a population of 50,000 as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.
