The Siouxland metropolitan region, once again, ranks first in the nation for economic development, according to results announced this morning by Site Selection magazine. The Siouxland Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) ranked first in the nation for the 2012 calendar year based on qualified economic development projects for communities with populations between 50,000 and 200,000 people. This is the third time in the last six years that the Siouxland region has been recognized with this distinction.
