Sidney-Shelby Named in Prestigious Top 100 Micropolitan List – Fifth Year in a Row

The Sidney-Shelby County area was again named to the prestigious Top 100 Micropolitan list by Site Selection Magazine. We have received this honor       6-years running, ranking as 19th nationwide in 2021. Site Selection looks at an annual snapshot of economic investment. Ohio received the highest state ranking with 17 micropolitans in the Top 100.


Site Selection Magazine’s award focuses on new corporate facility projects with significant impact, including headquarters, manufacturing plants, research & development operations and logistics sites, among others. It does not track retail and government projects, or schools and hospitals.


“Projects have to be a new or expanded facility of at least 20,000 sq. ft., create at least 20 new jobs or require at least a $1 million investment to quality,” said James Hill, executive director of the Sidney-Shelby Economic Partnership.


The Office of Management and Budget has identified 543 Micropolitans in the U.S. A micropolitan is defined as an area adjacent to a metropolitan city with (a city) of at least 10,000 but less than 50,000, plus adjacent territory.
