Having grown up in Cedar City when there was only one high school, three elementary schools and a small state college, I have witnessed several growth spurts over the years. Each time there is economic development and opportunity, people flock to this beautiful, friendly college town.
It was a big deal when Walmart came to town. It was a big deal when Walmart built a larger store and Home Depot came to town. Now the small state college is an expanding State University, with a strong national reputation for a quality education.

From file folders to foam containers, and roofing materials to recycling centers, production is up in Cedar City. What' next on the horizon? A classy, private jet maufacturing plant.
