auburn university: Auburn-Opelika, AL ranked 6th in America's Fastest-Growing Large And Small Metros - 10/09/08 09:07 AM
Auburn-Opelika, Ala.Rank: 6
Projected total GMP growth, 2007-2012: 24.01%
In the mid-1980s, Auburn officials decided to focus on attracting small and medium-sized employers in the technology sectors. Their work seems to have paid off. Auburn University is still the metro area's largest employer, but the area's location along the I-85 corridor makes it an ideal spot for auto parts suppliers that serve manufacturing centers elsewhere in the South. By 2012, Auburn's population is expected to grow by more than 17% above 2007 levels.
