Nicole Thompson, Economic Director for King George County, was the guest speaker at a recent business community luncheon where she focused on the exciting things that are happening in King George. The County was excited to welcome a slew of new businesses including Walmart, Autozone, GameStop, and a soon-to-be Sweet Frog. She commented that while King George may not necessarily be the place where big business puts lots of manufacturing plants, it is the excellent quality of life that brings small businesses to the county which increase job opportunities.
The County is also pleased with the new Mary Washington University campus which will provide great opportunities for those working at Dahlgren and individuals living in the community. King George is looking at a large expansion of the Smoot Library, the creation of a new county park, and then renovation of an elementary school. In addition, the County has just joined the Northern Neck Tourism Council and is supporting the creation of the Dahlgren Heritage Museum.Tweet
