Boone County Named Indiana Community of the Year

Sep 13, 2023 | News

Nothing, it seems, can stop the red-hot momentum of the second-fastest growing county in the state. Situated just north of Indianapolis, Boone County is attracting businesses of all sizes and sectors, as well as citizens with its increasing list of job opportunities and quality-of-life amenities. In recognition, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce is honoring Boone County as its 2023 NextEra Energy Resources Community of the Year.

“You cannot look at the game-changing transformation that is yet ongoing in the county and not be excited and inspired by what it means for the residents, businesses, and the state,” says Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar.

“Boone County now boasts a real triple threat with Lebanon, Whitestown and Zionsville – all of which are receiving state and national accolades and attention. Adding to that is what’s happening in smaller communities like Advance, Jamestown, and Thorntown. On behalf of the Indiana Chamber, I’m thrilled to acknowledge the many efforts that are moving the area forward and making it a top destination.”

Molly Whitehead, executive director of the Boone County Economic Development Corporation (Boone EDC), says officials are honored by the selection and thrilled to further put the area in the spotlight.

“More and more businesses are recognizing the benefits of establishing a presence in our county attributed to our business-friendly climate, highway accessibility, and a desirable community to live. It is with great pride we accept this recognition as we continue striving to be better in Boone County.”
