Belton is growing, a trend that is projected to continue over the next decade and beyond. With its central location in the rapidly growing Texas triangle between San Antonio and Dallas, the metro area is primed to grow faster than any other second-tier Texas region outside the Texas/Mexico border.
Belton boasts a young population, many of whom are just joining the labor pool. A large portion of the population is working-age, including exiting military from Fort Hood, highly educated college graduates, and career-ready high school graduates.
Like the nearby metros of Austin and Dallas, Belton is diverse, with residents hailing from varied backgrounds, creating a vibrant and culturally inclusive community.
