Our neighbors to the North, Maury County's ongoing growth has continued to make top rankings not only statewide, but in the nation based on a recent study by aggregate data generator SmartAsset.

The latest study ranked Maury County as the top county in Tennessee under four major investment categories, which include business growth, gross domestic product growth, new building permits and incoming investment.

In addition, the county also ranked No. 3 for incoming investment and No. 7 for incoming investment nationally, ranking in the Top 10 in more than 3,000 counties.

The study breaks down investment figures over a three-year period, which demonstrates sustained performance.

The rankings come on the heels of the Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance Annual Dinner last week, celebrating a "record-breaking" year in many aspects of local growth.

Topping the list of local factors is the growth of GM in Spring Hill and the new Ultium Battery Plant.
