The "triangle" includes the communities of Columbus, Starkville, and West Point and their respective counties, with a population of over 128,000 people. The term Golden Triangle was created to encourage greater economic ties between the three cities and counties, LowndesOktibbeha, and Clay. The three cities share the Golden Triangle Regional Airport.

Columbus had traditionally been the leading city of the Mississippi Golden Triangle, but the rapid growth associated with Mississippi State University, and other factors, has led Starkville to challenge this position and ultimately surpass Columbus in population.

  • In October 2015, The Mill at MSU opened in Starkville. The Mill includes a conference center, office space, and a brand new Courtyard Marriott, all located across from Mississippi State University for easy access.

  • The SMART bus system, which serves both the City of Starkville and Mississippi State University, has carried more than 1.42 million riders since its inception in January 2014. It now has 10 routes total, one of which includes the Golden Triangle Regional Airport.

  • Recognition: Restaurant Business Magazine named Starkville one of the top restaurant growth markets in the U.S., WalletHub.com listed the City of Starkville as a top baseball market, TIME magazine, in their piece "Where to Retire", named Starkville one of the top eight college football cities to retire in, and Best Colleges Online named Mississippi State University as one of the best small town colleges in the country. 
  • According to Mayor Parker Wiseman, between 2011-2013, the City of Starkville issued permits for more than $115 million in construction. From 2014-2015, those permits rose to $154 million. Projections show that 2016 could be the City of Starkville's biggest construction year yet. 

A recent industrial boom of manufacturing companies locating at the Golden Triangle Industrial Park in Lowndes County has led to a strong push for Columbus as the lead for the anchor city position of the rapidly growing region. Columbus is also the home of Columbus Air Force Base and Mississippi University for Women.

More recently, Yokohama Tire Corporation selected West Point, MS, as the location of its new U.S. commercial truck tire manufacturing plant, which is set to open in October 2015 and manufacture one million commercial tires annually.
