Buckle up, because Troup County and LaGrange are growing! We have 2,500 jobs coming in the next 12  months.

We will have several new places to eat that we have needed for a long time. Our mall will have two new faces this Fall that will bring more people to LaGrange.

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.
