Calm down bud. Atlanta will still be the king of the south no matter what happens. The recession, and the lack of large amounts of free flowing credit, is the only thing keeping the city back at the moment. There are literally dozens of projects, skyscrapers, and transit systems just waiting for things to get back to normal so they can be built.

Once that happens you can still hate on good 'ol Atlanta from Alabama for years to come

Thanks, excuse my vernacular; I really don't make an effort in grammar and spelling on a meda that is known for acronyms run-ons incomplete sentences and Capitilization errors.

however, your third grade teacher would be proud. LOL

What areas will become the city's eyesores or trouble spots? Let's say crime remains the same as it is today... At what point will people be fed up and decide to flee the city? And where will all the indigent people go/reside? In 20 years, do you think panhandling and homelessness will still be an issue?

Lastly, in 20 to 30 years, where do YOU plan to be?

I think Atlanta's water issues are not so much an environmental problem as a political problem. The water is here; the issue seems to be related to the claims made on that water by parties downstream.

I sort of agree with Cobain about downtown moving north. The AJC is moving north and it seems most new business settles in the northern burbs. Downtown could see a resurgence in a while if a lot of companies move out b/c of decreased rents and Marta access. I was surprised how far Buckhead is from downtown. I always thought it was closer. Buckhead looked like it could be the new downtown!

5.38 million as of july 08, probably right around 5.5-5.6 for the '10 census

growth dropped from 151k to 115k this past year, or by about 22%, compared to 10% drops in people added in dfw and charlotte, 5% drop in austin, 8% increase in houston, so will be interesting to see how atlanta holds in up with the july 09 estimates

charlotte and rdu are growing more quickly now as a %, but georgia is still on course to surpass michigan in pop. by 2011

I think that Atlanta's growth rate percentage will continue to decrease slightly will places like Birmingham, Mobile, Nashville, and Huntsville will see slight population increases.

Percentages can be misleading, numerically I just don't see any of these cities gaining more people than Atlanta in the forseeable future.
