Central Florida Crossroads: a Bright Future for the Lakeland – Winter Haven MSA

Bartow, Lakeland, Winter Haven, and Plant City all stand in the crossroads of central Florida. Over the next few years some significant moving and shaking is expected which will directly or indirectly affect all of us who call Polk County home.

The recent zoning approval for CSX Corp. clears the way for the transportation supplier to construct a rail terminal business park adjacent to their proposed rail terminal. The ultimate goal of the project is to create a transportation hub on the southern end of Winter Haven. The building project, planned in phases, should keep local construction workers busy for up to 10 years. As the project comes to life, supporting services will be needed, such as warehouses and other freight transportation logistics and maintenance facilities. All of those businesses will need to be staffed, with jobs requiring a diverse range of skills.

Here in Winter Haven, the impact of stronger employment will benefit everyone in the form of a more vibrant community, increased availability of goods and services, and even more restaurant choices. A few miles away, in Bartow, Lakeland and Plant City, the enduring benefits that accompany a healthy economy will be enjoyed by everyone.
