Walton’s country charm and great location are attracting attention. Population projections for the year 2010 show an increase of nearly 20%. The growth that we are experiencing provides an ever-expanding work force for new business and industry. The State of Kentucky actively supports this new growth by offering assistance with project financing and skills training.
While our community is committed to expansion, we are concerned with maintaining our rural charm and beauty Responsible, careful zoning allows for new business and industrial parks. Newly located industries add clean, modern architecture to the surrounding rural area.
