"What's Working?" Talladega Co. drives in dollars beyond its famous race track
Talladega Co., AL. —Just east of Jefferson County and about 50 minutes from Birmingham, along Interstate 20 East, you'll find Talladega County. With a population of little more than 81,762, the county seat is the City of Talladega and it is known for its world famous superspeedway, warm hospitable people and a hub for automotive and manufacturing industries. However, the aforementioned is just a snap-shot of a county also bustling in the southwest region of the county. Towns such as Childersburg and Sylacauga, home to a thriving Blue Bell Ice Cream plant and noted marble capitol of Alabama, are also bustling with citizens aimed at creating communities that highlight the best quality of life for families looking for a quieter pace of life.
In this What's Working online video report, Alabama's 13 Bettina Boateng , Producer Danielle Deavours and Photojournalist Ben Bryson take you to Talladega County to show you how locals and officials are working together to maintain a great quality of life and attract more jobs to Talladega.
