shenandoah valley: City of Harrisonburg YEARS YEAR AR Discover Harrisonburg H


arrisonburg is on a roll. Abundant employment op- portunities and a great qual-


ity of life are attracting new residents to this metro area in record numbers. According to UVA’s Weldon Cooper Center, Harrisonburg is second only to northern Virginia in population growth for metropolitan areas in the Com- monwealth since 2010. Harrisonburg is the fastest growing city along Virginia’s Interstate 81 corridor. Many factors contribute to the attractiveness of Har- risonburg, including natural beauty and abundant outdoor recreation options, proximity to DC and Richmond mar- kets with excellent interstate access, and the community’s diversifi ed and stable economic base. However, if you must pinpoint one factor that paves the way to recent economic successes, most signs point to James Madison University, the region’s largest employer and powerful economic engine. JMU perennially ranks as one of the top regional universities in the


South, and also as one of the best values in higher education. As a result, JMU is one of the top Virginia schools of choice for high school graduates. JMU’s annual operating budget is over $500 million. It has been estimated that this equates to approximately $13 million in local tax revenues for Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. JMU cur- rently has over 100 capital projects on the books at some stage of development. But this is only the tip of the iceberg when you consider the talent pipeline, technology transfer, and all of the re- search and development value that JMU off ers to the Harrisonburg community.
