Looks like the leaders in all 3 counties are working together. Perhaps this will lead to a unified MSA like it should have been all along? I have a feeling a lot of the MTMUS employees will be living in Morgan County and commuting in since the new plant, even though in Huntsville, is actually closer to Decatur than it is to the downtown area of Huntsville. The plant should be in full swing in 2 or 3 years, just about in time for another MSA redefinition.

It will probably take several years for MTMUS to reach an employment of 4000 after it opens. The full impact might not be felt until five years from now. The same goes for its suppliers.

The next big driver for a MSA redefinition will be the 2020 census. It will be a few years after 2020 for the first MSA update to happen. After that I think the MSA is updated every couple years. Even then the updates are base on population estimates a couple years old.

All this implies that if the MSA for Huntsville is eventually enlarged it might be up to 10 years away.

This is not the first time they've worked together. The do work together on campaigns to get money for projects, or lure an industry.
Limestone and Morgan are very cautious, though, and don't want to be run over or dominated by Madison.
