Economic development to increase in metro area

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Economic development could soon spread outside of the cities of Madison and Ridgeland after years of being centered in those areas.

About one thousand jobs were created in Canton in 2012 when three vehicle brands were added to the Nissan Plant.

The addition of the Murano will create about 400 more jobs at Nissan. Another 300 job openings are expected when a Wal-Mart SuperCenter opens this year.

Madison County is also looking to lure more big employers by establishing a "megasite" where there's plenty of available land.
