Lillington, North Carolina
The town of Lillington claims to have something for everyone, from young families to retirees. The Harnett County seat, it sits just off Interstate 95, a bit north of Fayetteville and Fort Bragg and not too distant from Raleigh, North Carolina's capital city. The Cape Fear River runs through town on its way to the Atlantic Ocean.
By all accounts, the town continues to prosper. Harnett County Economic Development recently announced that the construction of two new 9,000 square foot buildings is expected to draw new businesses to town. In addition, a new hospital is slated to open in 2011.
Lillington and Harnett County expect the town to grow to meet not only the needs of the North Carolina Research Triangle and Fort Bragg but the requirements of associated businesses. With an educated, skilled work force, close proximity to major metropolitan areas and transportation, the environment is ideal for economic advancement.
