Guess what business also need workers so with Columbia County the industry in Augusta would die and that number is only so high because of FT Gordon which technically really has nothing to do with Richmond County since it's federal land.

Simply not false information, CC just started booming about 10 yrs ago before than the restaurant they had was Evans diner. I don't recall them having a walmart, Lowe's, home depot, and etc. Fort Gordon was here back than and it didn't make a different. What made a different is people from RC move there think life was better n schools. So tell me this what going to happen to CC if housing market crash again and people can't afford the house note?

You do make a good point here. It was the residents of Richmond County that started the migration to create the Columbia County we see today. It's very interesting when you look at Columbia County today. The county has a few major employers but nothing on the scale of GRU or the medical district. Some studies predict the county will surpass Richmond County in population within the next 20 years, however Richmond County will continue to supply the bulk of the high paying jobs. I do wonder what the explosion of Cyber Hill will do to the area. What is clear is Columbia County for now seems to have the upper hand as it relates to housing while Richmond County will see the actual jobs growth.

Seems like the last crash didn't effect this area much if any so not sure what your getting at there. the concept of living and working in two different places isn't foreign. it works all over the county the population/resident populous is in one are while the jobs are in a central location. Richmond needs Columbia County because they need workers Columbia County need Richmond because people need to work and shop.

FT Gordon hasn't had the type of expansion it's been experiencing over the last 7-8 years in quite some time. . I am pretty sure people migrate from Richmond to Columbia County but much more people migrate here to work then decide to live in Columbia County.

I believe there are far more people live in CC, with higher mortgages then RC. If you look back when the housing market crumble RC or North Augusta didn't miss a beat. It was more foreclosure houses in CC when market crash and probably still is. Basically the banks are doing the same thing they did that cause the market to crash in the first place, putting people in houses they can't afford, that what CC is doing.
