Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd announced major economic news during her 14th State of the City address on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.
In 2016 a total of 3,825 jobs were created in Meridian - a more than 10 percent increase over the prior year. In addition, commercial and residential construction values topped $430 million, an increase of nearly 10 percent. The Village welcomed the addition of 600 jobs alone. With the construction of the Ameriben/IEC Group and Brighton Corporation headquarters underway at the new Ten Mile Crossing area off I-84 – a mixed-use development focus for the City– the economic outlook continues to be positive heading into this year.
“In the past year we have seen national recognition for our community. Businesses are expanding and locating to Meridian. And people are choosing one of our many great subdivisions to call home. I am pleased to say that the State of our City is Thriving,” said Mayor Tammy.
