Exurban County Escapes Atlanta's Sprawl
"Nearly every metro Atlanta county shares the same development plotline. Developers arrive looking for inexpensive land just beyond the last swath of subdivisions. They build houses for people willing to trade a longer commute for a cheaper, larger home... But unlike many counties being sucked into the region's sprawl, Jackson has a local economy not dependent on Atlanta. It offers jobs in factories, at distribution centers and in an outlet mall."
