County Government

Anderson County Courthouse-Mark Hardy Photography
 Anderson County – consistently ranks as one of Tennessee’s top ten counties in capital investment and job creation each year.  Home to eight industrial parks along with other locations, 65 companies employ more than 15,000.   Our location, available land and buildings, productive labor force, low business costs, technology assets and quality of life makes Anderson County the perfect place to live, work, play and learn.

Anderson County continues to flourish with industrial growth, both new and existing, commercial/retail growth, educational growth, and recreational growth.  Anderson County delivers what many areas only promise:  small town life amid forested hills, with large sparking lakes and clean rivers.  Yet, we are in close proximity to major shopping and entertainment in the city of Knoxville and Smoky Mountain area.

Anderson County is one of the most diversified counties in Tennessee and comprised of five incorporated municipalities, Clinton, Lake City, Norris, Oak Ridge and Oliver Springs, together with rural areas, reflect a diverse county, strongly influenced by its heritage and history, but deeply committed to the bright future that lies ahead.   In Anderson County, visitors may gain a greater understanding of early America’s Appalachia and glimpse the frontiers of science, energy, research and development.

We welcome you as a business, as a visitor, or as a new resident!
