SLOW GROWTH: Famous for its fear of joining the south Florida metropolis, Martin continues to look askance at major growth. That said, there’s no shortage of pioneering ideas from existing businesses, such as Stuart’s Advanced Technologies Group, a developer of novel engineering answers for problems defying conventional solutions. Founder and President John Justak’s hunt for a place to put a new engine test lab typifies the Martin quandary. “I like living here because of all the restrictions, but trying to do business is different,” Justak says. The exception in Martin is the more welcoming community of Indiantown, which will see 6,300 new homes in a few years.
