City of Elko

The perfect merger of small town charm and business-friendly community, the City of Elko is not only the number one “best small town in America,” according to Norman Crampton’s 1993 book, but also the service hub of the northeastern Nevada region. Serving a population of over 50,000, Elko has experienced a surge of retail and service industries in recent years. It’s no wonder we’re one of the fastest growing regions in Nevada.

A Growing Economy

Driven by hard rock mining, transloading, manufacturing, cattle ranching, gaming, tourism, outdoor recreation, government and a large retail and service industry, Elko is a growing city and the hub of the region.

One-Day Access to the Western U.S.

Positioned against I-80 and with easy access to State Highway 225 and US-93, Elko is within one-day truck service of California, Oregon, Salt Lake City and other major markets. Plus, just four miles outside the city, the Northeastern Nevada Regional Railport and Industrial Park is served by Union Pacific Railroad and BNSF.

A Business-Friendly Government

Nevada is one of the lowest taxed states in the nation, with no inheritance tax, no state income tax, no franchise tax, no unitary tax and no personal property or inventory tax. Add that to our pro-business right-to-work laws and you’ve got a state—and city—that really mean business.

And a Community You’ll Love to Live In

The business-friendly government, endless transportation options and growing economy are just the beginning. Ranked #1 “best small town in America” by Norman Crampton’s 1993 book on small towns, Elko has something for everyone—from 120 acres of public parks to hundreds of courses at Great Basin College.
