Recent Expansions

We have an extraordinary school system, quality health care at Audrain Medical Center, a Member of SSM Health Care, and an outstanding parks system. Our community is building and growing with a dozen new manufacturing and distribution projects over the last 10 years.

Recent expansions include Gold Crest Distribution Center, a food products plant by Dawn Food Products, and an engine component production plant by Spartan Light Metals.

The city continues to produce improvements that enhance the lives of our residents. The US-54 Corridor is the premier location for commercial development in the area while the city offers 2 business parks for manufacturing and distribution center development. Mexico boasts 2 golf courses, a private 9 hole course at the Mexico County Club and an 18-hole championship golf course in Arthur Hills Golf Course.

Mapping Out The Future
Mexico is looking into the future. The community has been invited and involved in creating a new comprehensive plan to keep the city in touch with the changing needs and priorities of our citizens. Our residents are mapping out their own future on a broad range of needs facing our community, from economic development and public works, to parks and youth issues, to public safety and finance.
