Nixa is the “Crossroads to the Ozarks,” and your Gigabit City destination. Just minutes from both Springfield and Branson, Nixa is one of southwest Missouri’s fastest growing cities. Located in Christian County — the 44th fastest growing county in the United States — Nixa has postured itself wisely with infrastructure investments and a can-do attitude that supports and sustains community and regional economic opportunities.
In 2015, Nixa was recognized as southwest Missouri’s first Gigabit City with fiber connection availability for speeds of 1 Gigabit throughout the community. With its top-notch schools, Nixa ranks among the top places in Missouri to live as well as work. The fact that Christian County is growing faster than any other county in 30 states speaks volumes about Nixa’s future growth potential.

Nixa provides to its community all utility services except natural gas. Missouri Gas and Energy (Laclede) delivers gas. Nixa purchases its energy from Southwest Power Administration (SPA) and Springfield City Utilities; it owns and operates its electric transmission and distribution system. The city’s water source is groundwater drawn from eight wells tapped into a deep aquifer ranging from 1,251 feet to 1,700 feet in depth. A 4.1 million-gallon-per-day wastewater system currently services 1.3 MGD within the city and general vicinity.
Nixa is a “GIGABIT” city. Suddenlink, the city’s cable and telecommunications provider, is capable of providing gigabit speeds to virtually the entire community. Its recent fiber installation investment serves each and every industrial building within the city’s industrial park. In addition, Sho-Me and KAMO own and operate fiber utilities throughout the community for commercial and industrial business use.
