As one of the fastest growing counties in the nation, Brunswick County experiences a lot of boom and bust from its growing population.
While its impact on roads and other infrastructure can be negative, growth also brings a number of positive things.
For example, many new businesses, stores and restaurants that would have previously overlooked Brunswick are stopping to set up shop here. That means more jobs for area workers. In some cases, it also means bringing more workers into the area, which in turn spurs on increased home building and sales.
