Economic Development

Economic Development is important to Lee County's current and future growth and is just one of the many reasons the county is among the fastest growing counties in the state.  Employers in Lee County are able to utilize a highly-trained workforce thanks to opportunities provided by Auburn and Opelika High School, Auburn University and Southern Union Community College. 

Because of this workforce, the fantastic quality of life citizens in the county enjoy and the location of Interstate-85 in the county, Lee County has become home to several world-renown commercial and industrial companies such as Briggs and Stratton, a Wal-Mart distribution center and several automotive suppliers for Kia and Hyundai.
