I'm going re quote this because this correct....


Cobb went from 688,078 in 2010 to 755,754 for the 2017 est

Cherokee wen from 214,346 in 2010 to 247,573 for the 2017 est

Cobb has grown 67K, while Cherokee has grown 34K

Cherokee is growing at a faster percentage because it's population is smaller to created the rate,

A 100% growth for Cobb would be another 688,078, while 100% for Cherokee growth would be 214,346. This would Cherokee more likely to have faster growth rate........


How ever Cobb has gain more in raw numbers... almost double Cherokee. Cobb is actually the 4th largest gainer in raw numbers this decade.

Census estimates are not accurate counts. I wouldn't even over react to this.

In fact if anything I've noticed the opposite: almost all the main roads I tend to travel on, such as Atlanta Rd, Powers Ferry Rd. They're all 1 lane or 2 lanes. Even through busy and built up areas.

Cobb's road infrastructure (excluding what GDOT has done to 75 and 285) has not been overly widened, especially for all the county's growth of the past decades.

Especially in contrast to Alpharetta and Gwinnett, which has a lot of lanes on a lot of their roads.

And yeah there was and has been transit opposition in Cobb, but there's now going to be a study and a 2019 ballot referendum for transit sales tax and mass transit in the county. We're finally doing it, which I'm thrilled about. And we're fully participating in the new metro-wide transit system. And there's a good chance MARTA may even be operating in the county in the near future. Not sure what else you want. We seem to be making some real progress as a county.
The choice to join ATL was not given, it overlaps the current GRTA service area. ATL is a transit planning authority, 0 funding for capital projects and O&M.

Cobb is seeing less growth than larger Gwinnett. 1.93% (or 16,900) vs 1.74% (or 12,800) in 2016-17. What do folks in this thread attribute that too?

Looks like Cobb, Fulton, Clayton and Rockdale are growing at almost exactly the same rate, just slightly behind big old Gwinnett.

Cherokee, Henry and COA are on a streak.

Douglas, DeKalb and Fayette are doing well and I suspect the pace will accelerate in all those areas.

Very impressive!

Gwinnett has a lot more room to grow on too.

I'm guessing Gwinnett's Hispanic growth has helped its numbers, too.

Maybe the fact that Gwinnett's generally a lot more affordable. In terms of starter home prices. Most of Cobb has gotten pretty exclusive.
