Advantages for Future Growth
Switzerland County, home to nearly 10,000 residents in 2005, has experienced growth of over 17% in recent years, among the highest in Indiana. The county also reaches beyond its borders to draw employees from surrounding counties as well as neighboring states, Ohio and Kentucky. The regional population of nearly 200,000 increases the available workforce more than twenty-fold.
The community has consistently invested in modern infrastructure and services. Recent examples include ongoing highway improvements and a $7 million dollar upgrade underway by the Patriot Water Company. The community has also invested in quality of life improvements. The Switzerland County Medical Center and County YMCA are just two instances of community investment that make Switzerland County a great place to live.
Accessibility and affordability, combined with a lifestyle that combines rural charm with metropolitan amenities, add to the area's appeal.
