Economic Development

The city of Barnesville owns numerous prospective industrial sites to suit various industries. Sites are available from undeveloped properties to existing facilities complete with utilities. Lamar County offers a strong labor pool with a solid mix of carefully nurtured small businesses, as well as mid-size and large businesses. Lamar County is the place to live, work, and raise a family.

Planned economic development is the key foundation for providing outstanding service, stable tax structure, and an excellent quality for life. You will find it all in our authentic town of Barnesville: rural land, an excellent educational system and college, library, roads, shopping, parks and recreation, cultural activities, and community events which attract and retain the work force and businesses.
