MIDLAND - It's one of the newest towns in our area, and right now, it's one of the few places showing significant economic growth and real potential. The town of Midland is in Cabarrus County, and today WBTV learned about surprising new projects coming to town that should benefit this whole area.
Midland is in the middle, near four other cities, but far from mediocre.
"Midland is open for business," said Mayor Kathy Kitts. "We are growing and we have the lowest combined tax rate in Cabarrus County."
That's the word from Kitts, talking on Tuesday to other mayors, business, and civic leaders from across Cabarrus County at the annual state of the region summit.
Kitts has a positive story to tell, and so do her constituents.
