On January 19, the City of Hickory released a new issue of its popular Crafting Hickory Magazine.
The third edition in the magazine series, the new Crafting Hickory Magazine focuses on how the City of Hickory continues to craft a strong, vibrant community through its bond projects, new housing opportunities, economic development, education, and workforce development.
“Hickory has a great story to tell and this magazine is one tool that the City of Hickory is using to share the City’s messages of economic transformation and growth, both locally and regionally,” said Hickory City Manager Warren Wood.
The magazine outlines how the City’s Crafting Hickory projects, now totaling $90 million, are already yielding positive results.
To date, three international companies have signed on to build at Trivium Corporate Center, leading to 398 new, high-paying jobs. In addition to the Trivium corporations, residential and community developments were recently announced. More than 1,700 new housing units, including 260 affordable housing units, are in the works.
Readers of the magazine will also hear personal stories from some of the City’s “Doers and Makers,” as well as local business leaders of companies headquartered in Hickory.
Printed copies of the magazine can be picked up at the Julian G. Whitener Municipal Building located at 76 North Center Street in Hickory.
A digital version of the new Crafting Hickory Magazine is also available for view and download at https://www.hickorync.gov/crafting-hickory-magazine.
