It’s no secret that Spring Hill is the place to be. People gravitate towards growing communities which is exactly what Spring Hill continues to do. Last year the city approved 804 building permits, this year they have already approved 253. What makes Spring Hill so attractive? Our cost of living is 4.7% lower than the U.S. average, employment increased by 3% in the past year, and annual wages per worker have increased by 3.4%. Plus, Spring Hill ranks #9 in the State of Tennessee for healthiest housing market according to SmartAsset. Bottom line-your money can go further in Spring Hill.
The Spring Hill business community continues to grow as well. The number of business licenses issued in Spring Hill has climbed steadily from 177 in 2014 to 261 in 2017 with 75 being issued so far this year. Since November 2016, Spring Hill has engaged in over 70 new Economic Development projects. Kayce Williams, City of Spring Hill Economic Development Coordinator, recently announced an expansion of an existing business, which will double in size and create more white collar jobs, at our February luncheon. In addition, she explained that the first corporate relocation under Mayor Graham’s administration and current Economic Development Commission should be announced soon.
Our Spring Hill Chamber continues to grow alongside our growing community. Last year our Chamber gained 100 new members as well as hosted 25 ribbon cuttings. This year we have gained 34 new members which puts us on pace to gain almost 140 new members by the end of the year. In 2018 we have already hosted 7 ribbon cuttings and we are looking forward to celebrating a total of 6 ribbon cuttings and/or ground breakings in the month of April:
