Growth, progress, prosperity. There’s no shortage of it in North Alabama, which has seen its population grow by 30,000 over the last five years and is projected to rise by a further 24,500 by 2027. Jobs are also on the up, having increased by almost 50,000 in the past five years – with a projected growth of 33,000 more jobs, also in the next five years.
