Our chamber is doing a wonderful job of helping LaGrange become a shining star of Georgia cities. Take a look at all the building going On. It is everywhere.
Our population is projected to grow 28 precent by the year 2025. The great news is that our kids will not have to leave LaGrange to find a job. Our unemployment rate is 5.6 percent. Yes, we are a blessed city and county. We have so much to be thankful for.
We have a great industrial park with clean companies that get involved in the community. Look around, we are growing and will be a shining star of Georgia.
