Saline County: Exciting New Growth
Saline County has seen a trend of consistently making headlines, and for good reason. The residents of Saline County are hardworking and dedicated to making their community the best it possibly can be, and as a result of everyone’s effort, Saline County and Salina has made headlines yet again.
The Saline County economy has grown exponentially in numbers that we have not seen in decades. From 2020 to 2021, the Salina County economy grew by 12.4%, hitting a record total of over $3 billion. This shift amounts to an unprecedented addition of $341 million to the GDP (Gross Domestic Product). The previous record was in 2017 when the GDP increased by 7.1% for $116 million. As you can see, we more than doubled our previously held GDP growth record and as Saline County continues to push forward, we are excited to see the growth our future has in store for us!
It is not only our economy that is growing, but in the times of rural communities seeing a decline in population, Salina has rejected the status quo and for the first time in almost a decade, seen an increase in our population. From 2021 to 2022, Salina saw a net increase in population of 207 more people. We attribute the increase to the work that the good people of Salina are putting forth to make this community truly a home for anyone. While 207 people may sound like a small amount, we trust that this is not an isolated event, but more of an indication of a new growth for Salina, dependent on all the great work happening here.
