Atlanta population surge, residents move north
Timing is everything, as the saying goes, and it’s never been more true in the Atlanta metro area.
Just as new never-before-released multi-acre homesites in Governors Towne Club open up, the Atlanta Regional Commission, released a study demonstrating how much the Atlanta area is growing, declaring the pace, “faster than it has in years.”
In the last year, according to the commission at WABE, the population of 10 Atlanta counties has grown to 60,300 people, about 15,000 more than the average annual change from 2010 to this year.
“The economy is getting better and our population growth is responding to that,” said Mike Alexander, manager of the Research and Analytics Division at the ARC.
Cobb County, home of Governors Towne Club, was third, with Gwinnett County leading the growth in the state and Fulton County, home of Atlanta, coming in second.
“The city of Atlanta since 2010 has issued more building permits for residential construction that any other jurisdiction,” Alexander said. “That really is a counter-trend to about 40 years of building permit history.”
So with that amount of growth comes increased traffic and congestion, making moving a little north a far more appealing option.
