Site Selection Lists Owensboro-Daviess County as One of Top Counties along Ohio River Corridor

Site Selection Magazine has listed Daviess County as one of the top counties along the Ohio River corridor in terms of new plants and expansions from July 2008 to August 2009.

The economic development trade magazine, published by Conway Data, listed 230 projects in the counties adjacent to the Ohio River throughout six states.  Despite the sour economy, that total approaches the totals seen during the same months in 2004-2007 and is up from the 190 projects tracked during 2007 to August 2008.

Topping the list are the major metro areas along the Ohio River, including Allegheny County, PA (Pittsburgh), Hamilton, OH (Cincinnati) and Jefferson, KY (Louisville).  Daviess County ranked sixth among more than 70 counties that border the Ohio River with seven projects during the 12 month period.
