Economic Growth & Workforce Development Under Mayor Atkins' Leadership

 

“Mooresville is an engine for job growth.  It’s essential for us to bring high wage jobs to our community and to provide the resources to get people back to work in good jobs with increased earning potential.”

 

Since Miles took office as Mayor, over $1 billion in investments have been made by companies globally and 2,360 new jobs have been announced*. These investments help pay for infrastructure improvements, business and industrial park developments/renovations and provide employment opportunities.  Workforce development for ALL segments of the population has been a major priority since day one.  Miles has personally helped to develop programs that fill the skilled trade and technical gaps, as well as a special focus on increasing the opportunities for local veterans.
