Why Northern Kentucky economic development is flying high
The economic development organization for Boone, Kenton and Campbell Counties, Northern Kentucky Tri-ED, attracts about 22 new projects a year. Senior Vice President Karen Finan said last year there were 24 that generated $300 million in capital investment and thousands of jobs. She's projecting another signature year for the region.
"Right now, we have ten projects that we have announced; we have over 500 jobs that have been created and over $80 million in capital investment," said Finan. "The first half of this year has been very strong, in part, because of the pipeline we have established in attracting and creating that awareness about Northern Kentucky." More here.
