Murfreesboro continues growth: 'Boro ranks 12th in U.S.

Its not all good news in these challenging times, or in this story, but the ‘Boro continues to attract:

"Murfreesboro is centrally located in Tennessee, adjacent to Nashville and along I-24," vice president of economic development with the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce Weber said. "This central location makes the community easily accessible to newcomers." She noted that "the Middle Tennessee economy has not experienced the significant losses other areas in the U.S. are experiencing. As a result, some people may be relocating here looking for opportunity."

Murfreesboro Mayor Tommy Bragg said he thinks attractive opportunities for employment as well as educational, religious and recreational pursuits continue to draw people here. "I continue to think that our growth will be sustained over the coming years because of low tax rates, educational opportunities, a stable government, and it's a great place to live and work"
