Since it's "Tax Day" across America, it seems fitting to consider what else you can do with your hard-earned dollars, besides sending them to Uncle Sam. For one - if you're a business owner - you can invest in North Brevard. And here's why that makes sense:
1. The talent pool. Thanks in large part to the presence of NASA (which remains one of the area's largest employers) North Brevard is home to a high concentration of technical and skilled labor. In fact, there are more engineers working in Brevard County than anywhere else in Florida.
2. An excellent quality of life. This is Florida, after all, where the average mean temperature year-round is 70 degrees. Close to the world's greatest entertainment venue for all ages - from Disney to Univeral in nearby Orlando - along with an abundance of natural wildlife getaways, and one of the state's highest performing school systems (Brevard County Schools), Brevard is a great place to call home.
3. Part of the growing Central Florida market. Florida is the third-fastest growing state in the Union. And Central Florida, stretching 75 miles from Tampa to Titusville, now has more than 8 million people living and working in the region.
Those are compelling reasons to invest here. But don't just take our word for it. Considering recent Federal support for facility improvements at nearby Port Canaveral, it looks like even Uncle Sam is prepared to invest in North Brevard.
