Union County's Charlotte Business Journal Features
For several years, Monroe-Union County Economic Development has partnered with the Charlotte Business Journal to produce a 16-page feature that spotlights the unique stories and interesting details of the manufacturing community in Union County, NC. The first of its kind in the Charlotte Region, many other counties have now followed our lead in producing these types of feature reports.
Analysis of Union County's Manufacturing Base
In 2016 the Monroe-Union County Economic Development Board of Advisors commissioned Wingate University's Byrum School of Business to conduct an analysis of the Commercial and Industrial Base of Union County, NC to determine its overall impact to the residents of the county. As a part of the study, a comparison of the residential tax base versus that of the commercial/industrial tax base emerged. This analysis has been presented throughout the Charlotte Region to aid in the securing of more industrial land and the conservation of commercial zoning for future non-residential development.
