Just 45 minutes from Orlando, Polk County's eastern-most city boasts major employers in Civix
, a property development company that is building a medical complex, a new ALDI
grocery distribution center plus the $40 million expansion of Cellynne Paper Manufacturers
. A long-time center of Citrus agriculture too, Haines City
made a key decision to lure more businesses downtown when it invested in widening sidewalks, installing historic lampposts and burying utility lines. City leaders also made a significant investment in the town's future by expanding the Lake Eva Complex and Railroad Park properties.
