North Mobile County is home to one of the fastest growing cities in the area, Saraland. Saraland boasts its own school system and continues to see an increase in development as buyers seek affordable homes in the growing area. The reasonable commute via I-65 to Mobile and Baldwin counties from Saraland contributes to its booming population.
Large corporations continue to invest locally, including two prominent businesses, Alorica Telecommunications Center and Royal Dutch Shell. The population is just under 14,000 residents, but with additional annexations anticipated, Saraland continues to climb the charts as a leader for growth in Mobile County.
