The Fredericksburg Region is home to 180,000 workers, with 1 million more in our 40 mile commute zone, and the numbers are growing rapidly. Nearly 70,000 of our most highly skilled residents commute outside the region for work each day, but they would welcome the opportunity to work closer to home. Studies show that most of these workers would prefer to work in the region if offered comparable positions locally — many would even accept lower pay.
